Arizona State University is partnering with ride-sharing company Uber to offer drivers tuition-free online degrees.
Uber drivers or their family members will have the opportunity to choose from more than 80 undergraduate degree programs. To qualify, drivers will have to maintain a high user rating and drive regularly. They can also earn certificates in entrepreneurship or English as a second language. Initially, the benefits will only be available to drivers in eight cities across the U.S.
ASU’s partnership with Uber will be broader in scope than its partnership with Starbucks, which does not allow the transfer of benefits to family members.
