Marathon Petroleum offers financial support through several programs. Whether you or your family are adopting a child, pursuing a higher education, making a contribution to a college or university or volunteering at a nonprofit organization, we encourage and want to help you achieve those goals.

Adoption Assistance

Educational Reimbursement

The Educational Reimbursement Plan offers financial assistance for two types of education-related expenses: 1) tuition for courses under an approved degree program or single courses outside a degree program, and 2) Certification and Licensing (C&L) assistance for an approved licensing or professional certification program.

The Company will reimburse all or a portion of your eligible tuition, required fees and textbooks, subject to a maximum reimbursement of $675 per semester hour or $450 per quarter hour for satisfactory completion of approved courses.

Giving and Volunteering

Through our Matching Gifts Program and Volunteer Incentive Program, Marathon Petroleum encourages your efforts to support higher education and give back to the communities in which you live and work.

Matching Gifts Program

The Matching Gifts Program offers you a way to double your contributions to a qualified institute of higher education. The plan provides a dollar-for-dollar match for gifts of at least $50 up to a maximum of $10,000 per person per calendar year.

Volunteer Incentive Program

We offer the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) to encourage and support community involvement. When you and/or your spouse perform a minimum of 24 hours of volunteer service during a calendar year at an eligible organization, you may apply for a volunteerism grant of $500. The maximum total annual grant per couple is $1,000. Volunteer service includes activities that benefit the general community, such as committee work, fundraising, tutoring, mentoring or neighborhood revitalization.

Scholars Program

Through the Scholars Program, Marathon Petroleum offers scholarships to a limited number of high school students who are children of MPC employees. Applicants must be high school seniors with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) who plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate program at an accredited four-year college or university. Scholarships are also available for children who will attend a two-year college or vocational-technical school if the student states an intention to continue elsewhere to earn a bachelor degree or its equivalent.

Two types of scholarships are awarded:

  1. From $1,000-$2,500 annually, based on financial need, with merit as a consideration. These awards may be renewed for up to three years with continued demonstration of financial need and satisfactory academic performance.
  2. One-time non-renewable awards of $2,500, based on merit only (scholastic achievement, test scores and high school and community involvement).
