DUEDAA Scholarship

DUEDAA introduced a large scholarship program in 2004 with a view to providing financial assistance to deserving students of the Department of Economics such that they could complete their academic programs without financial worries. The program started with 50 scholarships but has now grown to 100. These are paid from both a central fund that has grown to one crore taka already and sponsorships by alumni of the Department.

The scholarship is awarded for a one year period and renewal is contingent on the curricular and extra-curricular performance of the beneficiary. The initial award is based upon a lexicographic ordering as follows:

1. studentship of the Department of Economics, University of Dhaka
2. demonstrated evidence of financial need
3. academic performance and promise
4. excellence in extra-curricular activities

DUEDAA aims to build up a sufficiently large scholarship fund to ensure that the academic progress of no economics student is hampered due to financial distress. The fund will also make provision for special prizes for students who have made really good use of the scholarships in terms of academic and extra-curricular achievements.
