The case of secondary education stipends program in Bangladesh : El caso del programa de estipendios para la educación secundaria en Bangladesh (Spanish)

From its inception in 2008, an innovative project backed by the World Bank has provided over two million targeted stipends for secondary education in Bangladesh, 60 percent of which are provided for girls’ education. This stipend program was targeted to poorer students and has resulted in a 20 percentage point increase in retention rates overall and a rise of around 24 percentage points for girls and boys from the poorest households. At present, Secondary Education Quality and Access Enhancement Project (SEQAEP) is active across one-third of Bangladesh. The SEQAEP experience and results are expected to contribute to more effective and systematic targeting of the poor, and the approach itself is likely to be replicated nationally.
