JPMorgan Chase & Co. Initiative

Working to support programs targeted at improving the academic success for students of color

In January 2019, JPMorgan Chase made history with the largest corporate donation in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion history in support of a pair of programs targeted at improving the academic success for students of color. The gift toward the Morrill Scholarship Program (MSP) and the Young Scholars Program (YSP) has meant expanded educational opportunities for students and access to a diverse pool of human talent for the corporate investment giant.

As a result of the investment, JPMorgan Chase leaders act as guest speakers in classes, volunteer in community activities and mentor and coach MSP and YSP scholars. In addition, JPMorgan Chase holds events for students at their company locations.
