As a company, we believe in the value of access to higher education and how it can expand opportunities for our employees and their family members.”
Dr. Campo said the corporate partners program offers employees of for-profit and non-profit organizations the opportunity to access Ashland’s degree programs at discounted rates. “Corporate partner employees, spouses and dependents are eligible to receive the Corporate Partners Tuition Scholarship, giving greater access to our nationally ranked and fully accredited degree programs,” he said.
