GEMS Our Own Indian School has announced a new partnership with the Lassonde School of Engineering, York University, Canada, to launch scholarships for two students at the school.

Lassonde School of Engineering was launched in 2011 by Pierre Lassonde with a donation of $25 million, in the hope of creating, 'a home for the renaissance engineer.' The university offers courses in all forms of engineering from the traditional to digital, computer, earth and atmospheric, space engineering and more.

Sir Christopher Stone, Chief Education Officer for GEMS Education said, “partnerships like this, with leading universities in the world, are not just a testament to the high achievements of Our Own Indian School and other GEMS Schools, but it is just further evidence that the UAE is now considered to be a hub for educational excellence. We look forward to partnering with many more leading colleges and universities in the world.”

Lalitha Suresh, Principal, GEMS Our Own Indian School, said, “as an educational institution, it is our responsibility that we provide our students with all developmental tools that prepare them for their future. By partnering with esteemed international universities through the pre-university courses and scholarships, the students can begin to carve a path of success for themselves.”

GEMS Our Own Indian School is also looking to partner with York University in offering pre-university courses (PUC). This will allow for high school students to be introduced to the challenging, intellectual and highly stimulating university environment besides also providing the additional year required to enable eligibility for admissions in American and Canadian universities.

GEMS Our Own Indian School is also exploring opportunities with other universities to expand the scholarship and PUC programme.
