COVERING YOUR COSTS
How to find help Many companies, trade organizations, advocacy groups and government programs offer grants, scholarships and low- or no-interest loans to cover the costs of degrees, certifications, or simply coursework.
Companies Cover Costs Knowing that a well-educated workforce increases productivity, employers willingly invest in their employees' education, offering tuition reimbursement benefits for a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or job-certificate training. Benefits vary in both the amount and type of education they cover. The collaborative effort of both colleges and businesses to make education affordable results in programs like Metropolitan College. Some government programs offer tuition reimbursement in exchange for a few years of service. See below for just a few of the companies that offer education assistance to employees.
