The Sri Lankan Students Association in the Republic of Korea was initiated in 2010 by Sri Lankan students in Korea, and established in 2011 with the support of the Sri Lanka Embassy in Korea. The purpose of the Association is to bring together all Sri Lankan students in Korea and to create a conducive and friendly environment for their studies and extra-curricular activities.
According to Article IV 2.7 of the Constitution of the Association, the Advisor of the Association shall be the Ambassador of Sri Lanka in the Republic of Korea. In the above context, the Embassy has established a mutually beneficial collaborative partnership and close relations with the Association with regular interaction. The Embassy provides a platform to the members of the Association to form good relations with professional groups, networks and institutions with a view to maximizing benefits for Sri Lankan students in Korea in pursuing their studies and career paths. The Embassy also explores and shares scholarship, fellowship and internship opportunities for Sri Lankan students in the Republic of Korea. The Embassy also supports the Association with their cultural events including the holding of the Sinhala-Tamil New Year celebrations annually.
The SLSA convenes their Annual General Meeting at the Sri Lanka Embassy premises where the office bearers (President, Secretary, Vice President, Vice Secretary, Treasurer, 5 Executive Committee Members and 2 Regional Representatives) of the Association are elected.
