Live Correspondent: As Bangladesh celebrates the 50 years of independence, the British Council is also celebrating the 70 years of opening the Dhaka office. The UK-Bangladesh partnership has been immensely productive, and the highlights of it have been the education and empowerment of women and girls. 

Subsequently, in 2021, Bangladesh has been chosen to receive the highest number of Women in STEM Scholarships in South Asia from the following universities – Teesside University; City, University of London; University of Strathclyde; Newcastle University; Edinburgh Napier University; The University of Warwick; The University of Edinburgh; and Brunel University London. Various subjects will be offered in the scholarships, including Energy Transition, Climate Change, and Health and Life Sciences. 

The scholarship programme is part of a global partnership with 19 UK universities to benefit women from international countries, including the Americas, South Asia, and South-East Asia. Additional eligibility criteria include an undergraduate degree, English language proficiency, passion for study, actively working, Bangladesh citizens or residents, and the willingness to complete the entire academic period from September/October 2021 – 2022.
