About Amazon’s Career Choice Program

Amazon’s Career Choice Program is an educational benefit for its employees, which helps them learn new skills for career success at Amazon or elsewhere. Through this program, the company offers the enrolled employees fully funded college tuition, foundational skills, and career certificates.

In 2022, Amazon announced several additions to the program which include:

  • Increased Options: Employees can choose from a broader range of educational offerings, including high school completion/GED, English as a Second Language (ESL), and bachelor’s degrees, in addition to the previously offered associate degrees and certificates.
  • Fully Funded Opportunities: Up to an annual maximum benefit, Amazon will pre-pay 100% of tuition for employees to pursue everything from bachelor’s degrees to certificates.
  • Limitless Learning: As long as eligible employees work at Amazon, they can continue to take advantage of the Career Choice benefit with no lifetime limit.
  • Fast Starts: U.S. blue badge hourly employees (including part-time) will become eligible for Career Choice after 90 days of continuous employment rather than 12 months.
