McDonald's, Ivy Tech Team Up on College Tuition Assistance Program
Susan Dutca-Lovell

More than 300 McDonald's locations will participate in the new Archways to Opportunity education program which - through its partnership with Indiana's community college system - will help its employees afford college tuition. McDonald's employees who work a minimum 15 hours per week for 90 days can receive up to $2,500 in college tuition assistance each year - or $3,000 per year for managers - at 18 Ivy Tech Community College campuses located in Indiana.

The fast food giant is not the only one of its kind offering college scholarships and tuition assistance programs for its employees. Chipotle, Taco Bell, and Burger King are other top food & beverage companies that offer more than just ways to satisfy your hunger and thirst - they are also helping to reduce college tuition burden via scholarships and tuition assistance programs for employees who meet their scholarship requirements. For popular scholarships such as Taco Bell's Live Más Scholarship and McDonald's HACER National Scholarship, there is no scholarship essay required; rather, students are selected based on their unique backgrounds and skills, community involvement and financial need. Furthermore, these corporate scholarships offer large-dollar scholarships, awarding as much as $100,000 to multiple applicants per scholarship application cycle. Have you checked to see if your employer offers scholarships to its company employees? If not, you will want to see what college scholarship and college tuition assistance benefits exist for hardworking student-workers like you, beginning with this list of scholarships by employer.

We make it simple and match you to college scholarships you qualify for.
