ARLINGTON, Va., May 16, 2023 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] is expanding its market-leading Learning Together Program (LTP), the company’s education benefits program offered to employees around the globe. The expansion is part of the company’s commitment to drive employee innovation and attract and retain top talent. LTP is celebrating its 25th year and nearing $2 billion of investment in employees.
“Our Learning Together Program enables us to attract and retain a talented workforce that develops groundbreaking technology, state-of-the-art products and services, and advanced business processes, said Mike D’Ambrose, Boeing chief Human Resources officer and executive vice president, Human Resources. “What’s unique about Boeing is that we pay up to $25,000 per year, and even more for select STEM programs, directly to the employee’s school – upfront. With that strong support, we enable employees to start their degrees without financial barriers, confident they’ll complete them. Plus, our program is global, allowing us to support employee growth around the world.”
Employees are now eligible to participate in Boeing’s LTP immediately upon hire. In addition to more than 300 Boeing partner schools, employees have access to hundreds of schools that offer discounts and waived fees. New program offerings for eligible employees include:

As Boeing employees innovate and excel, they enable us to deliver the support our customers rely on each day,” D’Ambrose added.
Providing more than $70 million for the program annually, Boeing supports up to $25,000 per year for graduate degree programs and up to $15,000 for bachelor degree programs for tuition and eligible expenses, while also providing funding toward non-degree programs. Select STEM programs do not have funding limits.
