6 local colleges awarded internship funds


Several local colleges and universities are among 25 selected to receive more than $10 million over the next two years for local co-op and internship opportunities.

The aim of the Choose Ohio First Co-op/Internship Program is to create opportunities for Ohio college students that could lead to employment and more college grads choosing to stay in the state after graduation.

The money to fund the next two years of the program comes from casino license fees and was approved by the Ohio Controlling Board on Monday.

“This program will offer opportunities for our colleges and universities to attract and retain talented young professionals in Ohio’s workforce,” said State Senator Chris Widener (R-Springfield) in a press release announcing the award to four schools in his district.

The following are the amounts awarded to local schools:

  • Antioch College, $120,000
  • Central State University, $211,226
  • Clark State Community College, $221,359
  • Miami University, $748,566
  • University of Dayton, $800,000
  • Wright State University, $127,585
