National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES): Employer Aid for Postsecondary Education

This report examines the current state of employer aid in higher education, describing the types of employees and the kinds of educational and training programs that employers support. Analyzing data collected from the 1995 National Household Education Survey (NHES) and the 1995-96 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS), the report concludes that while support was relatively modest from employers, averaging less than a thousand dollars for the average undergraduate employee, such support "can be a significant source of assistance for both older and part-time students." The report notes that most undergraduate employees seeking support "attended public, less-than-four-year institutions." There was also a marked preference on the part of employers to support work-related programs over credential programs and to aid employees seeking more technical training than those in sales and marketing or in communications-related fields.
