On November 3, 2017, Vets in Tech honored Samsung Electronics America with their Education Award, which recognizes companies who are committed to education for Veterans. The award was presented while at their annual gala at the Marines’ Memorial Club in San Francisco, CA.
Through a $400,000 grant in 2016, Samsung has provided scholarships to more than 50 veterans in the Vets in Tech program, giving them the opportunity to receive training in coding and web development and helping them to transition into successful careers in technology. Vets in Tech is the only non-profit devoted 100% to getting veterans into the tech industry.
Support of veterans and military family initiatives are a major part of Samsung’s social responsibility and corporate citizenship efforts in the U.S. To learn more about Samsung’s recent veterans efforts, visit here.
