Bangladesh’s UCB Foundation has committed to providing scholarships to students in Bangladesh through a collaboration with Pay It Forward Bangladesh.
Eligible students will get Tk4,000 ($40) a month under the scholarship. The UCB Foundation and PIF Bangladesh will provide these scholarships over the long term to underprivileged students in remote areas of the country. The programme is a part of UCB’s CSR activities.
One of the objectives of the collaboration between UCB Foundation and PIF Bangladesh is to achieve social welfare through socio-economic development of the underprivileged.
UCB Foundation is a charitable concern of United Commercial Bank PLC, one of Bangladesh’s leading private commercial banks. PIF (Pay It Forward), is an NGO working to help students overcome obstacles to continue study.
