Investing In Our People Through Education Benefits

Our commitment to education benefits our people and our industry.

At J.B. Hunt, we recognize the important role education plays in the development of our people and the future of our industry. As a company, we provide tuition reimbursement and scholarship opportunities designed to help employees and their families, pursue their academic dreams, whatever they may be. We’ve also created company programs, like Adopt-A-Class, and collaborate with universities to provide resources for the organizations focused on sharpening the minds of the future.

Keep reading to learn more about the many ways J.B. Hunt supports education, and how our employees and our industry benefit from this commitment.

Tuition Reimbursement

For our employees, if continuing your education will advance your career, we want to help you take that next step. J.B. Hunt offers tuition reimbursement for business-related degree programs from any regionally accredited college or university, up to $5,250 per year.

The tuition reimbursement program is available to all full-time employees who have been with the company at least six months and meet the program criteria. If approved, we’ll cover up to $5,250 of the yearly tuition and fees related to your coursework so you can move your career forward with financial support.

J.B. Hunt Scholarship Program for Families

Our commitment to supporting our employees extends to their families, too. Through Scholarship America, the J.B. Hunt Scholarship Program for Families provides financial assistance to dependent children or grandchildren of J.B. Hunt employees hoping to attend college or vocational school programs.

Last year, we were thrilled to award scholarships to J.B. Hunt families. Applications are open annually each fall, and all full-time employees who have been with the company at least one year are welcome to apply.

“The J.B. Hunt Scholarship gives my family and I an insight into how much the company cares for its workers,” shared Jenny, a scholarship recipient. “For a company to be helping its workers and their dependents in this way really shows how much the company is willing to do for its employees.”

J.B. Hunt Transport Department of Supply Chain Management

J.B. Hunt is a proud supporter of the University of Arkansas, donating $7 million over the past five years to fund education programs focused on advancing the future of supply chain. This year, J.B. Hunt and the Walton College of Business announced the renaming of their supply chain department, ranked number one in the country, as the J.B. Hunt Transport Department of Supply Chain Management.

The collaboration between J.B. Hunt and the University of Arkansas strives to build Northwest Arkansas into the premier hub for the future of supply chain and logistics. Through our work together, we’re proud to give the future minds of supply chain the tools they need to lead the industry.
