Approximately 82,000 students will receive scholarships for primary education this year. Out of this number, 33,000 students will receive scholarships under the talent pool category, while the remaining 49,500 students will receive scholarships under the general grade category. For the talent pool category, scholarships will be awarded to 50% male and 50% female students based on gender and merit, in proportion to the number of students who participated in the district-based final examinations. Students who receive scholarships under the talent pool category will receive a monthly stipend of 300 Taka, while those under the general grade category will receive a stipend of 225 Taka.
It is noteworthy that the scholarship examination for primary education was held on December 30, 2022, after a gap of 13 years. This year, students in the fifth grade of government primary schools across the country participated in the exam, with approximately six lakh students participating in various centers. The examination began at 10 am and ended at 12 noon, with students taking a 100-mark test on Bangla, Mathematics, English, and Science. Due to the closure of primary schools because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was taken to conduct the scholarship examination to provide an opportunity for students to receive scholarships based on their merit, despite the absence of the final examinations. As a result, 20% of students from each school participated in the scholarship examination.
