Scholarship information

SUNY Oswego’s Co-op program, the first multi-departmental Co-op program in the SUNY system, allows you to create a work-integrated learning experience that enhances your academic studies and career development plans. In a Co-op, students enter a paid, full-time, long term (12 weeks to 26 weeks) employment opportunity in a mutually beneficial partnership between the student, the institution and an employer.

Because the Co-op placement is a non-credit educational program, students do not pay tuition for this program. Prior to Co-op, students participate in an accredited Professional Skills Preparatory course which provides and prepares students with a career development curriculum and a variety of resources. Topics include career planning and assessment, market research and job search essentials, resume and interview preparation, professional dress and work place etiquette, and more while drawing on classroom and workplace experiences to achieve academic learning and career development goals.


To be eligible, students need to:

  • Apply and be accepted to SUNY Oswego;
  • Meet all SUNY Oswego Presidential Scholarship criteria;
  • Commit to participate and meet all SUNY Oswego Co-op program criteria;
  • Matriculated into one of the Co-op majors below:

  3. Business Administration

  4. Chemistry

  5. Computer Science

  6. Electrical & Computer Engineering

  7. Finance

  8. Human Resource Management

  9. Marketing

10. Software Engineering

 *If awarded a Co-op Scholarship, this award will replace your Presidential Scholarship.
