30 CA Sri Lanka students win prestigious ICAEW Scholarships, opening their path to dual membership

Marking a pivotal moment in their professional journey, 30 exceptional students from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) were bestowed with scholarships from the prestigious Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), unlocking the exclusive opportunity for them to pursue dual membership from both professional bodies.

The event was held under the patronage of Mr. Tishan Subasinghe, Vice President of CA Sri Lanka, Mr. Asoka Piyadigama, CEO of CA Sri Lanka, and Ms. Lakmali Priyangika, COO of CA Sri Lanka, while Mr. Daniel Westley, Senior International Business Development at ICAEW joined virtually.

In a historic first, ICAEW, established in 1888 and renowned as one of the oldest and most respected professional bodies globally, selected CA Sri Lanka to receive the special scholarship last year, underscoring CA Sri Lanka's commitment to nurturing and empowering future leaders in the field of finance and accounting. The inaugural ICAEW scholarship programme in 2023 saw a total of 10 CA Sri Lanka students receiving the scholarships.

CA Sri Lanka is the only professional body in the world to offer a dual qualification simultaneously with ICAEW. To obtain dual membership from CA Sri Lanka and ICAEW, CA students must complete 2 out of 5 subjects from the CA Sri Lanka Strategic Level and 3 subjects from the ICAEW Advanced Level.
