AUSTIN, Texas -- Chevron contributed more than $1.1 million in grants to the University of Texas at Austin this year to support lab renovations, student scholarships and academic programs, the Austin Business Journal reported.
The contribution, representing four separate gifts from the company in 2008, targets programs serving students in the university's Jackson School of Geosciences, Cockrell School of Engineering and McCombs School of Business. The latest donation was presented to university officials on Oct. 27, at a campus reception with students who have previously completed internships with Chevron, the report stated.
"Our geosciences, engineering and business programs are among the best in the country," said Mark Blount, the University’s director of corporate relations. "With ongoing support from great partners like Chevron, The University of Texas at Austin will continue to lead in these vital fields."
