Inspiring Higher Education for All


Introducing JetBlue Scholars


There are thousands of JetBlue crewmembers without a college degree. With our mission to inspire humanity, we set out to change that. JetBlue Scholars is a new way for employers to help their people succeed. We partner with online course providers and institutions of higher learning to make earning a degree simpler and more affordable than ever.

Our crewmembers told us about all the barriers they face. We designed JetBlue Scholars to clear the way.
