The state run Daily News reported today quoting Minister of Higher Education, Prof. Wiswa Warnapala, the Ministry of Higher Education has taken steps to explore the possibilities of getting scholarships awarded by Commonwealth countries and other international bodies for post-graduate education. 

Further arrangements, according to the Minister are under way to seek the co-operation of the Commonwealth and non Commonwealth countries to get the number of scholarships awarded to universities substantially increased. 

The Minister has reportedly said that the final benefit of this exercise would reach the under-graduates of the 15 universities. 

In addition, the Minister of Higher Education is of the view that the number of scholarships awarded for various disciplines is not at all enough to generate enthusiasm among the teaching staff in 15 universities.
