Ladybird Nurseries announce need-based scholarships – successful applicants to get full tuition fee waiver

Educational philanthropy is taking a front seat once again with Monica Valrani’s latest announcement that her family’s scholarship fund will now be offering full scholarships to four students at both branches of Dubai’s Ladybird nurseries, starting in September 2016.

“Access to a great education is the birthright of each and every child, however families’ economic realities do not always make this possible,” comments Monica Valrani.

No stranger to philanthropy, Monica Valrani, CEO of Dubai’s Ladybird Nursery and Early Learning Centre, is a passionate believer in the power of education to change lives. Along with her husband Navin Valrani, she established the Monica and Navin Valrani Scholarship Fund in 2014 to support female students to attend London Business School and other higher education institutions.

“In broadening the scope of the Monica and Navin Valrani Scholarship Fund, my husband and I will offer financial support not only to university students but to the youngest pupils who are taking the very first steps of their exciting learning journey, right here in Dubai,” she adds.

Parents of the four children who are selected to receive the Monica and Navin Valrani Scholarship Fund will be granted 100% of their annual tuition fees at Ladybird and the scholarship will be open to all nationalities based solely on financial need.
