GB Scholarship Programme for Member's Children

To encourage schooling of Grameen children, Grameen Bank has now introduced scholarships, so that, children from the poor families stay in school, and compete academically in all extracurricular activities. Priority is given to girls. In Bangladesh education for girls is generally considered not as important as for boys. Even today, the general attitude of the society is such that women are supposed to take back seats and confine themselves in the role of a housewife after marriage.

In order to facilitate better educational opportunities for the children of Grameen members, Grameen Bank launched a scholarship program for talented students, in 1999.

At least 50% of the scholarship money must go to girls and the remaining 50% will be given to both boys & girls.
