Hear from Your Colleagues...

Lauren Ferretti "I've been a Starbucks partner for over 11 years and I was very excited to participate in the pilot for Starbucks U. I received help from an academic advisor & had an opportunity to learn about our educational benefits as Starbucks partners while the program was being reimagined.

> I'm going to use tuition reimbursement this fall while I study to receive a master's certificate in human resources. I decided to take classes through the CityU of Seattle because of the Starbucks employee discount on classes and I applied for the scholarship because I figured, why not? I am very active in my community, so I hoped I had a chance of getting it - especially as I didn't qualify for financial aid, but still found the cost of classes to be high; it was a great opportunity for me. I'm thrilled to have gotten the scholarship & have been telling all of my store partners about what Starbucks offers in the way of benefits and academic advising."

Christopher Kirby "I am using the Starbucks discount of 25% off all tuition at CityU. I am eligible (and am making use of) $1,000 in tuition reimbursement each calendar year. Starbucks also offers one of the classes I am taking for free, MBA 500.

I learned of this through other partners at my store who are already students at CityU. I also received a lot of information about them from corporate and in my email.

I applied for the CityU scholarship since I am going back to school and I love volunteering in my community, so it was a no brainer.

I am hoping to finish my MBA at CityU in Project Management and Human Resources. After that (or before!) I hope to work in Starbucks corporate. I've been with the company since 2006 and I'm not planning on leaving any time soon. Ideally, my career at Starbucks corporate would include a lot of interaction with partners and making their lives better."
