JCC UK OBA New scholarship program for students in GCE Ordinary Level in 2022
This year JCC UK OBA are introducing a new scholarship programme for students taking their GCE O/L in 2022. The top 30 best students in the year will be awarded a scholarship. The process will work with us selecting the top 12 children from the overall year along with the top 3 children from each of the six divisions making up the remaining 18 children. Each student that receives a scholarship will monthly be given 3000 rupees for their education expenses. This scholarship program is purely merited based and the selection process will be done by the principal and Educational team. Our main aim is for the students to get the best results possible at the end of the year. From its conception this year, we aim to continue this programme every year. Our long term plan is to produce online e-learning resources over the next 2-5 years which will contribute to our overall mission. Our educational team will work on this project. With this every student will benefit and get better results with more students ultimately being able to go university. Thanks 🙏. JCC UK 🇬🇧 OBA - 2022.... Read More →
