The program helps qualified employees or potential recruits to earn their master's or doctorate degrees. Once chosen through a highly competitive application and selection process, scholars receive funding for tuition, books and travel. Financial support even includes a yearly stipend that amounts to anywhere from $28,000 to $31,000. The program also offers mentorship and a network of resources.
