About the program

We believe that individual and corporate success is driven by lifelong learning. That is why we established the Employee Scholar Program – to enable employees to continue their education and build their skills for the future. The Employee Scholar Program is one of the most comprehensive company-sponsored employee education programs in the world.

The program provides employees the resources to stay current in their chosen field or enable new career opportunities and includes the following benefits:

  • UTC pays for tuition, academic fees and books at approved educational institutions.
  • The program is available to our global workforce.
  • Partner universities deliver programs at our locations to provide work-life flexibility.
  • Payments are made directly to the educational institution to minimize out-of-pocket costs.
  • Eligible employees can receive up to three hours of paid time off to study per week.

UTC has invested more than $1.3 billion to further our employees’ formal education. Since 1996, more than 40,000 degrees have been earned by employees in more than 60 countries. However, ESP is more than just a story based on numbers. It is about the investment that UTC makes in its people as a way of attracting and retaining a motivated and engaged workforce. Global full-time and part-time UTC employees are eligible for the program after one year of continuous service. Currently there are more than 6,000 employees enrolled in ESP.
