Citizens Development Business Finance PLC's social responsibility agenda, the CDB Sisudiri Scholarship Programme Season eight conferred a total of 46 scholarships to high achieving students who have excelled in national examinations.

The Chief Guests, Consultant Child Psychiatrist Professor Hemamali Perera and Chairman of CDB Herschel Gunawardena, CDB hosted this event within the old world charm of the Tower Hall Colombo 10, felicitating these young students who have immense potential to contribute impressively to the future of the country. As the CEO, Mahesh Nananyakkara said, "For CDB, education is a sustainable resource that we have always nurtured. We recognise this as being the foundation for building a vibrant and dynamic nation."

Under Sisudiri Scholarship programme CDB has thus far conferred scholarships to 324 students at a total investment of Rs 14 Mn, having held this ceremony eight times.

The cash grants are given to the parents of these students instead of crediting money into a child's account to ensure that a direct benefit is garnered to the students.
