The Alumni of our University residents in Western Australia, known as MORAWA, sent the necessary finances to set up a Scholarship Fund to help three deserving first year students from the Landscape Architecture Division. Office Bearers of the Society were in Sri Lanka earlier this year and visited UoM to inaugurate this Scholarship.
A Committee comprising Mrs. Shiranee Balasuriya, (Course Coordinator) and Mrs. Sanka Wimaladharma of the Architecture Division, Mrs. Shereen Amendra (Nominee of the Sri Lanka Institute of Landscape Architects - SLILA), Prof. Gihan Dias (Director, International Relations - UoM) and Mrs. Shyama de Silva representing MORAWA (on Skype) evaluated the students and the following students were selected, according to the criteria decided upon:
a) Ms. Sumudu Piyumanthi
b) Ms. Apeksha Saranga
c) Ms. Anuradha Fernando
The official Awards Ceremony was held on Friday, 12th October 2018 in the Vice Chancellor’s room and we were happy to have with us, former faculty member, Dr (Mrs) Jayanthi Jayawardena, from the Alumni of Western Australia, whose daughter is also a member of our Faculty; to grace the event.
Ms. Sumudu Piyumanthi gave a very sincere and appreciative vote of thanks on behalf of the three Awardees.
The University of Moratuwa, especially the Department of Landscape Architecture, is grateful to the Alumni in Western Australia for setting up the MORAWA Scholarship which would benefit and encourage deserving students.
