Summary

The Supporting Success Scholarship Fund provides the opportunity of education to gifted students from poverty stricken families in Bangladesh, where a primary education is not free or guaranteed.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

IRFF runs two free primary schools in rural villages of Bangladesh, but students finishing at these schools must enroll at public schools that charge tuition. Because most students cannot afford the fees, they do not continue with their education beyond the 5th grade. Supporting Success was started to meet this need. It provides scholarships that cover all of the educational expenses for the most dedicated students whose parents can’t afford the cost, allowing them to continue their education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Supporting Success selects students based on their academic success in grades 1-5, their commitment to education and their financial need and provides them with scholarships that cover their tuition, tutoring, uniform, shoes, books and supplies.

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing gifted students living in poverty with the opportunity to finish school, we believe that they will have the opportunity to support their families in the future and to break the cycle of poverty they have often lived in for generations.
