OfP’s Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) is a technical and vocational education institute that offer skills and workforce development training to high school graduates (grade 10). Rabiul Islam reports that OFP has just signed an agreement with the government for management of stipends for OIST students. Around 70% of the OIST students will receive Tk. 4,000 (about $50 CAD) every six months for books and supplies. Up until now, OIST has been subsidizing text books for low-income students. These stipends mean that donated funds can instead be used to purchase library books and teaching equipment for the learning labs.
