The University Of Texas At Arlington Receives $122,000 From Chase To Fund Education Programs For U.S. Military Veterans

Military Times named UT Arlington one of the best colleges for military veterans this fall based on an extensive survey that considered academic rigor, service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill and availability of specific programs to help service members.

Chase recognizes the tremendous sacrifices that military members and their families have made on behalf of all Americans. As a result, the company has developed a firm-wide strategy focused on employment, housing and education for returning veterans.

In early 2011, JPMorgan Chase and 10 other companies launched the 100,000 Jobs Mission, pledging to hire a total of 100,000 veterans by 2020. Since then, 120 more companies from nearly every sector of the U.S. economy have joined in, hiring 117,439 U.S. military veterans in less than three years. The companies have now doubled their commitment - to hiring 200,000 by 2020.

Chase has hired more than 6,400 veterans since 2011. In less than three years, Chase has hired more than 1,400 veterans in Texas – more than any other state in the country. It has also provided more than 660 mortgage-free homes, including more than 60 homes in Texas, to military families through its non-profit partners.
