Dr. Gias Khan dedicated his entire career for the development of the field of Marine Biology. We, the family of Dr. Khan would like to promote his scholarly contribution and support those who are similarly keen about developing their career in this field. The scholarship is initially funded through his family, while we are open to receiving donations, which will help us support more students.
The annual scholarship of total 50,000 BDT ($700 approx.) is open to 2 graduate students (25,000 BDT each) studying in a relevant field to support their research or thesis. Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate both need and merit.
Call for scholarship application, review process and handling of scholarship fund will be generously supported by the University of Dhaka.
We would like to express our gratitude towards Dr. Md. Kawser Ahmed, Professor and Chairman, Department of Oceanography, University of Dhaka for supporting us to make this happen. He has been a dear friend of Dr. Khan for a long time.
