Premium Mentoring by Sri Lankans for Sri Lankans
What is ScholarX?
Founded by Sustainable Education Foundation, the ScholarX is a 3 month program for Sri Lankan students who would like to get free premium mentoring during their study period. ScholarX program will also connect Sri Lankans who live all around the world, making the program for Sri Lankans who are living abroad to contribute directly to Sri Lankan students and the education system.
There are two reasons to start the ScholarX program. Reason 1 — There is no proper mentoring platform for Sri Lankan students. Also there is no proper mechanisms for Sri Lankan students to connect with Sri Lankans who are living abroad. Reason 2 — There is no proper platform for Sri Lankans who lives abroad to share their knowledge with the Sri Lankan students. In order to address these two problems we started the program.
