Corporate tuition reimbursement scholarships
These scholarships are far from the only way to fund your education through corporations. Tuition reimbursement is becoming an increasingly popular benefit for employees. Through this program, companies help pay for the education of their employees or their employees’ immediate families.
This benefit is becoming very popular at both white-collar and blue-collar positions. No matter where you work, or where your parents work, it’s worth checking if they offer it. The amount reimbursed varies significantly. Some organizations offer a set sum per year per employee to use at any program of their choice. Others pay for the entirety of a student’s education, but they can only take advantage of the benefit at certain institutions.
Check out tuition reimbursement options today to see if you can save big on your educational expenses!
