To celebrate UK-Sri Lanka cultural relations, the British Council Sri Lanka will be funding a small number of grants. We are looking for organisations that are seeking opportunities for collaboration. Similarly, the British Council also may come forward to offer certain social educational opportunities free of charge, open to the general public. Watch this space.
The funding and educational opportunities will be listed below as and when these opportunities come up.
