DBBL scholarships: a benevolent gesture
The Dutch Bangla Bank Limited has recently awarded scholarships to about 857 poor but meritorious students studying in bachelor’s degree programmes in different universities.
As media reports say, the awardees will receive Tk 36,000 each a year. The amount of the scholarship is not that big but nonetheless it will help many of the recipients who would have relinquished education, had this monetary support not been given to them.
The way the bank has chosen the recipients of the scholarships also deserves appreciation. Ninety per cent of the awardees have been selected from rural areas and 50 per cent of them are females.
Our hats off to the bank management and we hope other big financial institutions and corporate businesses will come forward with similar programmes.
