Lighthouse Learning, India’s leading Early Childhood and K-12 Education Group, formerly known as EuroKids International, and York College of Pennsylvania in the US, have announced a three-year partnership to expand educational opportunities for students. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on November 16, 2023, aims to provide students with enriched educational experiences overseas and access to scholarship opportunities.
As part of the collaboration, students from Lighthouse Learning will have the opportunity to participate in annual multidisciplinary learning workshops conducted by York College faculty. This partnership also opens avenues for Lighthouse Learning students to compete for prestigious scholarships and explore diverse programs offered by the US-based College. This immersive approach aligns seamlessly with Lighthouse Learning’s mission to nurture personal development and equip students with skills for success in the global economy.
The MoU was formalized by Prajodh Rajan, Co-Founder and Group CEO of Lighthouse Learning, and Dr. Thomas D. Burns, President of York College of Pennsylvania. York College is renowned for its excellence in professional business, engineering, and education programs, boasting a comprehensive range of over 70 majors across various disciplines.
Under the terms of the MoU, students who attend secondary schools operated by Lighthouse Learning for a minimum of two academic years will be eligible to apply for a guaranteed $9,000 USD merit scholarship per academic year throughout their four-year program. Additionally, these students can also apply for competitive-based scholarships offered by York College, such as the James L. Mohatt Excellence in Music Scholarship, Vincent Risley Scholarship, Eisenhart Community Scholars, and Presidential Research Fellowship.
