The following excerpt is from Winning Scholarships for College, Fifth Edition.
Contact the personnel or human resources office of your employer to inquire about scholarship opportunities and tuition reimbursement programs. If your company does not have a personnel office, speak with the general manager about the possibility of scholarship opportunities, or contact the company’s general headquarters to learn if such opportunities exist. Many companies offer tuition reimbursement programs as an employee benefit. In tuition reimbursement, the employee initially pays the cost of tuition and fees for the courses taken in college or graduate school. Once the courses are completed and a satisfactory grade has been earned by the employee, the company/employer will then reimburse all or part of the tuition and fees initially paid by the employee. Some companies pay these costs upfront. As a student working at Wendy’s Old-Fashioned Hamburgers in high school, I was eligible for a Wendy’s scholarship which I applied for and won.
