June 13, 2019  • UpSkill America

UpSkill America is an employer-led movement to expand opportunity for America’s workers and allow our economy and communities to thrive. As part of our mission to advance the upskilling movement, we are pleased to share the following news featuring one of our partners.

JetBlue announced plans to expand its JetBlue Scholars program to include pathways for employees to earn master’s degrees at discounted rates. The current program provides access to online courses and personalized coaching for employees pursuing undergraduate degrees, with JetBlue covering most of the costs. The addition of the Master’s Pathways will allow employees to pursue advanced degrees in leadership, business management, information technology, aviation management, or liberal arts through one of five regionally accredited institutions. The program will offer a variety of benefits, including potential tuition discounts and scholarships and access to specialized support services. Employees will receive discounted rates with total costs averaging $13,000 – $30,000. Click here to learn more.

We are pleased with this announcement and applaud JetBlue for continuing to advance the upskilling movement. Last year, JetBlue was recognized by the Department of Education, and the company has been featured in our UpSkilling Playbook for Employers since its original release. Click here to learn more about college degree programs in our UpSkilling Playbook for Employers.
