    Does anyone know if UPS offers college tuition assistance for part-time gateway employees? If so, how would one apply?

    There's info @ UPSERS.com on scholarships and downloading applications...I believe The Theodore R and Vivian M Johnson Scholarship Program apps are accetpted in FEB. Not every student can rec'v an award. A selection committee reviews and evaluates apps. Good grades and extra curricular activities is a plus.....Good Luck

    I thought the Johnson scholarship was for employees children and you have to live in Florida I think. My son received the Johnson and it was wonderful covered all of his college for 4 years. Very thankful that he got it.

    Ups is still doing the tuition reimbursement for management i believe? no they dont do it for union employees anymore and a gateway employee, would also be catergorized as a hub employee

    They still do tuition assistance for part-time union employees and management to my knowledge. They just stopped offering it to fulltime union employees. Unfortunately I fall into that group. :(

    Probably depends on where you are at. In my building only PT sups get tuition reimbursement. And that's only because if they gave tuition money to regular union puds then no one would ever become a PT sup. Ever.
