Further Education Support and Matching Student Loan Support

Under the Global Education Support Program, S&P Global provides Further Education Support and Matching Student Loan Support. 

  • Further Education Support: 
    Subject to course of study, S&P Global will reimburse previously-approved tuition amounts as per country-specific guidelines.
  • Matching Student Loan Support: 
    S&P Global will match the amount you have been reimbursed for further education with an equal amount for a current student loan. The sum of both amounts cannot exceed the country-specific annual maximum.

Matching Gifts

The S&P Global Matching Gifts Program provides the opportunity to help maximize the impact of employee charitable giving through corporate matched donations.

Employees can donate to eligible charities of their choice through CRConnect using a personal credit card and request a match for their personal contributions, up to a maximum annual amount. Employees can also donate directly to their charity of choice and request a match for their offline donations by uploading a receipt of contribution. Employees in some locations can donate to eligible charities by enrolling in payroll deductions.
