BRAC Bank launches the largest student scholarship programme at Dhaka University

BRAC Bank Limited has come forward to provide scholarships to the meritorious students of Dhaka University's Business Studies Faculty as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The scholarship is changing lives of hundreds of exceptionally meritorious yet financially challenged students hailing mainly from rural areas. Their indomitable stories of success and determination of the students in spite of financial hardships touch hearts of many philanthropists and responsible corporate organizations like BRAC Bank.

The scholarship has been awarded to 150 talented students of the faculty, which is the largest scholarship programme in terms of the number of beneficiaries at the university funded by any corporate organization.

Deputy Managing Director & CRO of BRAC Bank Limited Chowdhury Akhtar Asif handed over a cheque to Dhaka University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Md. Akhtaruzzaman at a ceremony held at the Business Studies Faculty on July 4, 2019.

Others Corporate companies in Bangladesh should come up with this kind of CSR.
