Uber Launches Free College Program for Food Delivery Partners
Uber is expanded its tuition-free college program by including its drivers who deliver food, the rideshare company announced in a statement.
The company has launched Uber Eats Pro by providing its delivery partners 100 percent tuition coverage at Arizona State University Online programs.
The eligible food delivery partners will have access to more than 80 undergraduate degree programs, and a course certificate in entrepreneurship and eight different English language courses personalized to students’ skill level.
The food delivery partner can also transfer the opportunity to an eligible spouse, domestic partner, child, sibling, parent, legal guardian, or dependent. Additional college costs such as textbooks and annual taxes on the value of the tuition coverage will be borne by the enrolling delivery partner.
“Uber Eats Pro also offers access to unique rewards to those delivering meals–be it on four or two wheels or even on foot– including third-party partnership discounts on helmets, priority support, and more,” the company said in a release.
Earlier the opportunity was only available for drivers who complete 3,000 trips and reach Uber Pro Gold, Diamond, or Platinum status. Uber Pro is a new rewards program for drivers that help them reach their goals on and off the road.
