Dhaka University Alumni Association(DUAA)
University of Dhaka, the oldest post-graduate institution
of the country, has in the meantime, conferred
certificates upon more than 1.6 million graduates.
However, Dhaka University Alumni Association
(DUAA) was established on 24 September 1949 with
late Justice M. Ibrahim as its President. One cannot
imagine Bangladesh without the Alumni of the
University of Dhaka.
Since its establishment DUAA is committed towards development of the University of Dhaka and welfare of its students through providing scholarships, stipends and funding in the academic pursuits of the students. Besides, it undertakes various projects to preserve the traditions of the University, adding to the academic excellence of the University of Dhaka in general in co-operation with the University authorities.
Having financial assistance from Eastern Bank Ltd. DUAA has introduced 224 scholarships along with carrier building counselling to meritorious students of all the 66 departments of Dhaka University. Furthermore, forty four meritorious students of all the 8 institutes under the University of Dhaka are also provided with similar scholarships and job training by Mutual Trust Bank Ltd and DUAA jointly.
About 20,000 SFT space has been allotted by the University to Dhaka University Alumni Association at the ground floor of the newly constructed "Nabab Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban" for the construction of its office rooms and other facilities.
With the passage of time and in cooperation with University of Dhaka, DUAA is now considered as a vibrant organization having nearly 3500 life members in its roll which are increasing every day. Duly registered by the government, DUAA is run by its own constitution and manned by a 33 member Executive Committee whose every account is properly audited and kept in its website "alumni.univdhaka. edu".
The Nobel Laureate, Dr. Muhammed Yunus, an alumnus of the University, is a member of the Dhaka University Alumni Association.
