Social enterprise Edukasyon.ph and the Philippine-American Educational Foundation (PAEF) recently signed a partnership agreement on scholarship information on study in the United States.
Designed to give more Filipinos more chances to know more and apply for scholarships in the US, the partnership agreement was signed between Ms. Linartes Viloria CEO, Edukasyon.ph and Dr. Esmeralda S. Cunanan Executive Director of PAEF.
“We are excited to be working with the Philippine-American Educational Foundation on sharing the word about scholarships in the US. This is a great opportunity for our students to be able to explore learning opportunities abroad,” said Viloria.
This partnership includes posting of information on scholarships and exchange programs for students, academics and professionals on the Edukasyon.ph website and other social media platforms. The US has been the top country of destination of Filipinos for study abroad. With the increasing educational opportunities in the US allotted for Filipinos, there is a greater need to spread information to a larger population.

For more than 60 years, PAEF has been carrying out educational exchanges involving students, academics and professionals from both the Philippines and the United States.
