The 20th Anniversary of the Employee Scholar Program

20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EMPLOYEE SCHOLAR PROGRAM

We do the big things that others cannot. The Employee Scholar Program helps make it possible.

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 in whatever field they want for as long as they want. Since the inception of the ESP, more than 45,000 employees have earned more than 38,000 degrees. For United Technologies that translates into a world-class workforce that is prepared to take on big challenges.

Below are the personal stories of some of the graduates of the ESP. They are inspiring and motivational. And they demonstrate the spirit of innovation that defines our company. Keep coming back as we profile more scholars in the coming weeks.

Says Chairman & CEO Greg Hayes, “The Employee Scholar Program is the best $1.2 billion we have ever spent.”


Get the facts on the most comprehensive company-sponsored education program in the world.
