History and Background of Association of Colombo Science Faculty Batch-1974

This association was setup and registered as a formal entity in 2016. The first AGM of the Association was held on the 4th of Feb 2018 at the Hotel Ocean, Colombo.

During the inaugural batch reunion held in 2015, the need to establish a formal association was identified. The initial focus was to facilitate the establishment of a perpetual scholarship fund for students entering the Science Faculty of University of Colombo.

Primary Objectives

  • To organise activities promoting relationship among its members and their families
  • To assist the science undergraduates of Colombo University in their studies by financial or other means, as agreed by the Management of University of Colombo
  • To assist the Management of University of Colombo in carrying out the development activities related to either academic or welfare of the science undergraduates
  • To assist its members and their families in emergency or distress situations
  • Provide Mentoring to undergraduates in the Science faculty.


All graduates that joined the 1974 intake batch at the Colombo University Science Faculty are considered as members of the Association of Colombo Science Faculty Batch 1974. All batch mates are invited to be financial members of the Association.
