British Council to give scholarships for Bangladeshi women

Update : 01 Mar 2022, 13:55

British Council Bangladesh offers six fully funded scholarships for female students from the South Asia region as part of the British Council Scholarship for Women in STEM.

STEM is an acronym for the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. They are looking for women with a background in science, technology, engineering and mathematics who can demonstrate their need for financial support and who wish to inspire future generations of women to pursue careers in STEM.

In association with 26 UK universities, to fulfill the intention of helping women from America, South Asia, South East Asia, Egypt, and Ukraine, the British Council launched the scholarship and kept it open for whoever eligible and will be able to show their actual need for financial support to have a strong STEM background. And the organization, as in the British council, possesses nothing but the objective to inspire future generations of women to accomplish something great in the STEM field.

As per the proclamation, Bangladesh is not exempt from the list, which directs that women from Bangladesh also will be able to enjoy this opportunity to apply and make it to the UK to have a career in STEM.

The scholarship will cover all your tuition fees, monthly stipends, a return economy class ticket, and surprisingly, even it will provide extra funds to cover your IELTS exam fees, visa application, national health service charge, and the expenditure for your study materials.
