NEWTOWN, Pa. – Cosmetics giant Estée Lauder has had a presence in Bucks County for around three decades, and now it’s reinvesting locally to build up its talent supply.
The company announced a donation of $200,000 to Bucks County Community College to launch the Supply Chain Scholars program.
“We saw this partnership was really a marriage made in heaven for us to really invest in that community, invest in the workforce of the future,” said Saverio Marcario, Vice President of North American Manufacturing at Estée Lauder Companies.
It’s the largest corporate donation in the college’s history and covers full tuition for students to attend Bucks the first two years, and then finish their education at Temple University.
Students also can get mentorship and hands-on experience at the company’s facilities in nearby Bristol.
“It really is a great opportunity for young professionals to come in and learn from the ground up,”
