Scholarship information

The multi-departmental Cooperative Education Program (Co-op) at SUNY Oswego is a unique opportunity that allows students to combine their classroom study with a six-month full-time professional employment experience. The Co-op program first started in private schools about 100 years ago. It has proven to be an excellent way to let college students learn outside the classroom setting. This prepares them to be the most work-ready candidates that employers desire.
