Companies that Pay for School

companies that pay for school

Did you know there are companies that will pay you a regular wage and help pay for your college on top of that? It’s true!

Here’s the catch:

Most companies require you to have been working there for at least six months to a year to receive tuition benefits. This is a great option for high schoolers interested in making money and receiving assistance when they head off to college. If you’re a junior or senior looking to pick up a job this summer, consider putting in an application at one of these companies!
