Amazon selects UA Little Rock, UA Pulaski Tech for workforce program

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the University of Arkansas – Pulaski Technical College were selected as education partners for Amazon’s Career Choice program, which provides Amazon’s hourly employees in central Arkansas with access to more than 180 accredited degree programs.

UA Little Rock and UA Pulaski Tech are the first higher education institutions in Arkansas to be named Career Choice Partners by Amazon.

“Having a company pay for an employees’ college education at the same time the employee has a great job removes some of the most significant barriers to attainment,” said UA-PTC Chancellor Margaret Ellibee.

Amazon’s Career Choice program is an education benefit. In the U.S., Amazon said it is investing $1.2 billion to upskill more than 300,000 employees by 2025 to help move them into higher-paying, in-demand jobs.
