Project Title: Spreeha Scholarship Program Brief Summary: Spreeha Foundation wants to make sure all promising students irrespective of their financial status, are able to receive opportunities to get higher education. We want to establish a scholarship program for our existing students at the Rayerbazar slum who are unable to afford education. This will serve the needs of low-income students, who frequently drop out and are discouraged to get further education because of high tuition fees. Through our scholarship program, we want to create a bridge that enables students to pursue their academic dreams and ultimately break the cycle of poverty. In Bangladesh, studies have shown the main barrier which restricts a student for continuing his or her education is the financial cost of institutions. This leads to high dropout rate for both girls and boys, resulting in child labor and early marriage. The scholarship will cover- institution fees, academic utilities to ensure students are encouraged to study further. By the end of grant year, the grant will enable 20 students to pursue higher education in the Rayerbazar community. Project Objective: 1. Increase access to higher education for 20 students through scholarships. 2. Encourage students to pursue higher education. Target Population: School going children living in Rayerbazar slum. - Spreeha students - Applicants from Rayerbazar slum Number of Beneficiaries: 20 students. Project timeline: 12 months. Project Strategy: Spreeha Scholarship Program is designed for outstanding students who want to pursue further education but are restricted because of monetary barriers. The budget allocated for Spreeha Scholarship Program will be given to students who fit selected criteria for financial aid. The student from Spreeha needs to come from a low-income family and has to show promising academic merit to qualify for the scholarship. We want to create a pathway for these aspiring students by supporting them financially in their academic journey. The scholarship will cover- admission fee, tuition fee, examination fee, and other academic utilities. Expected Barriers/Challenges: - Risk of drop-out because of family beliefs and restrictions. - Children from different schools might have different curriculums/ varying pace in academic session. Program Outcomes: - Students will be encouraged to pursue higher education. - Immediate assistance through scholarship to continue education. Project Budget: Total Budget: 5000 USD
