As a participant in the Fox School’s Corporate Partners Program, eligible Lincoln employees will receive discounted tuition scholarships at the Fox School for both in-person and online courses.
Employees have the opportunity to pursue graduate degree, certificate programs and executive education offerings. Lincoln employees who are alumni of Temple University are also eligible for an additional incentive toward their scholarship, and undergraduate tuition discounts are available for participants’ children.
“The Fox School of Business is excited to partner with Lincoln Financial Group to bring educational opportunities to its employees, including those who are already Temple University students and alumni,” said James Hansen, assistant dean for development and alumni relations. “Our school looks forward to collaborating with Lincoln to bring even more innovation and cutting-edge business acumen into the financial services industry.”
