Disney Offers To Pay Tuition For Hourly Workers

The Walt Disney Company announced today that they will now offer to pay full tuition for hourly workers who want to earn a college degree, finish a high school diploma, or even learn a new skill.

As many as 80,000 hourly workers in the United States could be eligible for the program, which is called "Disney Aspire."

Disney is rolling out its program in phases, with the first limited to online classes. In-classroom courses could be added if there's demand for them (and I'm sure there will be.)

"The Walt Disney Company will cover 100 percent of tuition upfront and will also reimburse application fees and required books and materials, removing the worry of paying to start or continue school," Jayne Parker, Disney's chief HR officer, said in a blog post.

This is such an awesome thing. Props to Disney!
