In this post, we’ll discuss the DBBL scholarship, what are the benefits of this scholarship, who is eligible for this scholarship, what is the amount, and how to apply for the scholarship. We hope you’ll find our post helpful.
What is the DBBL Scholarship
As we discussed earlier, Dutch Bangla Bank has been awarding scholarships to brilliant students who are in need of financial aid. This is a part of DBBL’s Social Cause Program and DBBL has been awarding scholarships since 2001. In 2011, it was seen that 7,922 scholarships were awarded at HSC and graduation levels. Within a few years, that number is expected to reach 30,000 per year.
The scholarships are available for the entire academic duration for different education levels such as –
- Post Doctoral
These are the education level for which DBBL provides a scholarship.
What is the Benefit of this Scholarship
The scholarship program of DBBL is meant to aid meritorious students in their pursuit of higher education. Since 2001 DBBL started awarding scholarships and it has become very popular among young learners. Some of the benefits of these scholarships are:
- Every year new scholarships are awarded
- The duration of the HSC Scholarship is 2 years
- Scholarships are renewable
Bangladesh is among the rapidly developing countries in the world. To maintain this pace of development, education is absolutely necessary. Even after having brilliant results, some students give up on education due to their family’s financial conditions. In this way, many talented students are not getting the chance to pursue higher education and serve the country to the best of his/her abilities. This scholarship program is meant for those talented individuals who have the poor financial condition.
Who is eligible for this scholarship
Although the DBBL scholarship programs have assisted thousands of students to pursue higher degrees, there’s still eligible for these scholarships. The following students are eligible for DBBL scholarships for 2022:
- Students must pass SSC 2022 examination
- Students who have other scholarships (except Government scholarships) are not eligible for DBBL scholarships.
- Students from the City Corporation and district/town areas must have a GPA 5.0 result and Students from rural areas must have a GPA 4.83 or higher
So right after passing the 2022 SSC examination students are eligible to apply for DBBL scholarships. But students from City Corporation or district/town areas must have a result of GPA 5.0 in order to apply for this scholarship. Students from rural regions must have a GPA 4.83 or higher in order to apply. Also, if students have other scholarships except government scholarships won’t be eligible for this program.
Scholarship Amount and Duration
Now we all know the benefits of the DBBL scholarships. But what is the actual amount of money the students will be receiving monthly? According to the official website of DBBL, we found the following information for HSC 2022 scholarship:
- The scholarship will be provided for 2 years
- A student will get Tk.2,500 per month
- For education materials, students will get Tk.2,500
- Tk. 1000 will be provided to students for clothing
The scholarship’s duration is for 2 years, which covers the entire academic year for HSC. Monthly students will receive an amount of Tk.2,500 per month. For reading materials, students will receive an amount of Tk.2,500 and for their clothes, they’ll receive Tk.1000.

It is said that “Education is the backbone of a nation” and we agree with this statement totally. During the pandemic, several students waved their education goodbye as their family was in a dire situation and they had nothing to do but to support their family. This is truly unfortunate as Bangladesh has lost some talented individuals because of just bad financial conditions.
For this reason, Dutch Bangla Bank has included the scholarship initiative as a part of its Social Cause program. This initiative of Dutch Bangla Bank has helped thousands of gifted students pursue higher education. For 20+ years DBBL has continued this effort and we hope that it continues to do so. Because without education, our nation will lose its backbone.
