Ashworth College has expanded its partnership with Education for Advancement (EFA). As part of the relationship, Ashworth College will be funding more than 20 one-year online college degree scholarships for residents of 18 Caribbean countries that are currently serviced by EFA.
Ashworth and EFA have delivered career-relevant online degree programs to the Caribbean since 2007. The partnership provides students with an accredited, online learning model as well as a physical presence in key Caribbean markets. The latter affords students the added advantage of engaging in local inductions, study groups, workshops and faculty visits.
Gary Keisling, Ashworth College Chairman and CEO said, “With EFA, Ashworth has the opportunity to expand its Caribbean footprint by offering more residents an affordable, quality, online education. In addition to our Associate degree programs, we also offer a range of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs that are relevant to the major industries in this area, such as banking, finance, construction management and tourism.”
Caribbean residents have the opportunity to apply for one-year scholarships in one of Ashworth College’s Associate or Bachelor’s Degree programs during the 2010-2011 academic year. The scholarships have a combined value of $50,000. Scholarship recipients will have access to Ashworth College’s entire catalog of self-paced degree courses which include business, accounting, finance, early childhood education, construction management and criminal justice.
