Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. (TMMK) has launched a new program that offers college students an opportunity to work at the company’s Georgetown plant while also providing tuition reimbursement.
Under the TMMK Student-College Partnership program, students earn a $12 per hour wage plus tax-free tuition reimbursement of up to $2,500 per year.
TMMK President Steve St. Angelo said the company will work to find jobs that fit around a student’s class schedule. Students can work part of a shift or a whole shift, from one day a week up to five. The amount of tuition assistance is based on the number of credit hours and the student’s grade point average.
Schools participating in the program include the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Georgetown College, Eastern Kentucky University, KCTCS, Kentucky State, Sullivan, Gateway, and Northern Kentucky University. The program is also open to other state college institutions.
