It’s been two years since the launch of the popular Kumar Sangakkara sponsorship between the cricketing legend and the university, which has seen a number of lucky Sri Lankan international students awarded with the Kumar Sangakkara Scholarship.

The scholarship recipients receive a 25% reduction in their university course fees, and are awarded on a ‘first come, first served’ merit basis.
