Though this program, SAP will provide 1,000 veterans full scholarships over the next 12 months in order to help them launch IT career,s while allowing SAP and its partner ecosystem to enhance their own technology workforce.

The first group of veterans started class in Texas in November this year. Within the next 12 months, SAP aims to train and certify 1,000 veterans in California, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia. Eventually the program will expand nationally through its online accessibility.
