PIPE℠ is a co-operative undertaking between employers and The Taft University System to provide graduate level educational opportunities to qualified employees.
All companies and firms with at least five managerial or professional employees are eligible to participate.
Employers benefit from the knowledge employees obtain through quality graduate education presented in a flexible manner. Employees are eligible for a tuition grant of between five and twenty percent.
The employer must generally agree to make the existence of the PIPE℠ Program known to employees. This can be accomplished in many different ways including internal e-mails, employee handbooks, or company/firm newsletters. Alternatively, if an employer is unable to make such a commitment, a company or firm may be listed if three or more employees elect to enroll within a three month period. Companies that have paid the majority of tuition for two or more employees are also considered participating organizations.
All university programs are covered.
Once a company or firm is admitted to the PIPE℠ Program, all employees are immediately eligible for a five percent tuition grant for the balance of the calendar year. In subsequent years, the amount of the grant will vary depending on employee enrollment in the prior year.
Between 1 and 5 Employee/Students 5%
Between 6 and 10 Employees/Students 10%
Between 11 and 20 Employees/Students 15%
Over 20 Employees/Students 20%
