Welcome aboard, and thanks for choosing United
We are focused on making United a great place to work by engaging and developing our employees and empowering them to make the right decisions for our customers and our business. Our talented and professional workforce is our greatest asset, and we are committed to investing in our employees and our culture to create an environment where people enjoy coming to work and take pride in providing a flyer-friendly experience for our customers.
We continue to invest in the training, tools and technology that our team needs to do a great job for you. In addition, providing opportunities for our employees to further their education outside of the workplace is an important part of investing in our people, and we’re proud to help our employees and their families pursue their education.
United is proud to sponsor the United Airlines Scholarship Fund (USF), which provides financial assistance to employees and their immediate family members who seek to further their education in accredited undergraduate, graduate and vocational-technical educational institutions. A scholarship can mean the world to a student and make it possible to reach an otherwise unattainable educational goal.
For the 2015–2016 academic year, the USF granted 250 new scholarships and more than 500 renewed scholarships, totaling more than $1 million, to employees and their immediate family members who are pursuing educational degrees and certifications. I’m proud to say this is the third year in a row the USF has surpassed the $1 million mark. The scholarships are awarded to students who have proven to be strong in academics, goals and aspirations, leadership qualities, and participation in outside activities.
The USF is funded by employee donations and by donations from many of our valued business partners, who show their support during an annual fundraiser. Through their generosity, the USF is able to award hundreds of annual scholarships that benefit our dedicated employees and their families.
Our employees are a vital source of creative ideas, solutions and innovations. We support their educational development so they can continue to make United a great place to work while delivering excellent customer service.
Thanks again for choosing United for your flight today. We hope to see you on board again soon.

and Chief Executive Officer,
