Starbucks College Achievement Plan Awards Free College Tuition to Starbucks Employees

starbuckscollegeAs someone who graduated from college with thousands of dollars in student loan debt, I am thrilled to share this awesome new freebie from Starbucks! They are giving their employees FREE money for college through their new Starbucks College Achievement Plan! That’s right, Starbucks employees who work at least 20 hours a week will be eligible to receive full tuition reimbursement if they enroll in Arizona State University’s online program as juniors and seniors. If they enroll as freshmen or sophomores they will be able to apply for scholarships worth $6,500, on average into ASU’s online program. There are more than 40 online undergraduate programs to choose from.

Way to go Starbucks! What a smart idea to invest in the kids of our future and get them started on the right foot without a hefty amount of debt.

Thanks, USAToday!
