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. 

Explore scholarship information that is exclusive for competitive prospective students who are willing to commit to a Co-op experience during their study at SUNY Oswego. Then get ready for an extraordinary journey to the professional world. 

National Co-op Scholarship Program

Fifteen $6,000 merit Co-op Scholarships (up to $24,000 for four years) are available to freshman who plan to commit to the SUNY Oswego Co-op program.
