The Seattle-based coffee company Starbucks has just announced that it will now extend a 100% tuition-free four-year college benefit to the spouse or child of every veteran or active military reservist employed 20 or more hours a week. The new tuition benefit is in addition to the college benefit (four years, 100% tuition free) that Starbucks extends to every employee who works 20 hours per week or more, which is offered through the online campus of Arizona State University (ASU). Starbucks will also now be paying for up to 80 hours per year for service obligations of employees who are active duty or reservists in the U.S. Armed Forces or National Guard.
