Professor Valentine Joseph (1929-2017)

We invite you, the worldwide Alumni of Faculty of Science, University of Colombo to join us in creating a lasting and worthy tribute to an exceptional teacher and one of the most beautiful human beings we were so lucky to see grace our lecture halls during our campus days, the late Professor Valentine Joseph.

We have all, over the years have studied under many great teachers, but Professor Joseph was able to enhance our worldview to such an illuminating extent, we are sure you’ll agree that when we look back on the Colombo University Faculty of Science Alumni Association (CUFSAA), in gratitude, has launched a tribute to this magnificent teacher and human being. We have now submitted a proposal to the Faculty to create a “Professor Valentine Joseph Memorial Scholarship awarded by the Colombo University Faculty of Science Alumni Association of North America (CUFSAA).”

Our Formal proposal obtained initial approval from the faculty and now going through the formal process at the University of Colombo. We officially launched this project at Tamasha 2018. This scholarship is an official University of Colombo Scholarship.

The Scholarship

We at CUFSAA took the true spirit of Professor Joseph when designing this scholarship. It is a premium scholarship aimed at paying around Rs. 10,000 towards a student taking both academic achievement and economic needs into consideration. We need to raise at least US$10,000 towards an endowment to achieve this. We are glad to say that within just a few hours raised quite an impressive portion of the targeted endowment (Around US$ 3000) from the appreciative alumni present at the Tamasha. We are still, quite a distance away from our ambitious target, and we need your help now to reach it!
