UPS LOOP logo

UPS needs employees, and they are willing to pay for college tuition and housing to get them! The program, called Kentucky LOOP (Living Options and Opportunites Path), can cover tuition at Jefferson Community and Technical College and the cost of housing during the college years. This is a great way to graduate from college with an associates degree "debt-free." 

Requirements are UPS employment at Next Day Air (night) for 100% tuition, semester and graduation bonuses and book reimbursement or employment at Second Day Air (day) with $5250 annual tuition and books.

The UPS Kentucky LOOP program is only open to Kentucky residents who have confirmed and validated residency in a Kentucky county other than Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, Spencer, Henry, Meade, Shelby and Trimble counties.  Learn more from this UPS Kentucky LOOP fact sheet.

Workers in a warehouse

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 9, 2018) – The Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet’s Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) has been awarded a $2.5 million U.S. Department of Labor grant to help injured or ill employees remain in their job or return to work. Kentucky is one of only eight states to receive a federal Retaining Employment and Talent After Injury/Illness Network (RETAIN) demonstration grant to develop a pilot program.

“It is an honor to be one of the eight states at the forefront of exploring ways to help Kentuckians return to the workforce after a potentially debilitating event,” said Josh Benton, deputy secretary of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. “When employees are sidelined whether due to an injury or illness, it can have a long-lasting impact on them, their families and employer. With early intervention and a coordinated approach, we can help employees stay on the job or return sooner,” he said.
