Two years of college, free

Hormel Foods will begin offering two years of free college tuition to all the children of their American employees, beginning next year. Not based on achievement test scores or GPA, the new program is a way to create equality in college admissions, and the company hopes many who take advantage of the offer will be first-generation college students in their families.

Called "Inspired Pathways," the program begins in the fall of 2021. The company has 16,000 domestic employees and the program is open to any dependent child of those workers. Hormel has more than 30 plant and office locations in the U.S., mostly in the Midwest, and the kids can attend any community college as long as they graduate from high school and meet the college's entry requirements.
