Dialog Merit Scholarships
The Dialog Merit Scholarship programme was established in 2003 to support promising students aiming for careers in the telecommunication, electronic, electrical and computer engineering industries. Within each district, top performers progressing from the G.C.E. Ordinary Level examination to physical sciences, along with top performers at the G.C.E. Advanced Level examinations entering engineering faculties at state universities are granted scholarships. The programme is unique due to its monthly payment throughout the students' duration of study and deliberate selection of the best students at district and national levels.
Over the years, the programme has supported more than 700 students striving for excellence in education, with a commitment of over Rs. 100 million. While disbursements are made directly by Dialog to each student, transparency and regularity of the programme are maintained through unbiased and up to date information obtained from the Ministry of Education and the University Grants Commission.
Dialog has created social media groups for both current and past beneficiaries of this coveted scheme, allowing past scholars to share their experiences and act in a capacity similar to that of a support network to provide advice to new scholars. This ensures that a support system is in place through an elite network of competent and successful professionals, even after the scholarship recipients have completed their education.
