Sponsored by Embry-Riddle Career Services, the Co-op Assistance Award Program aids deserving students with expenses they may incur when they participate in a co-op. Money could be used for tuition, fuel to travel to the industry site, for professional clothes to wear at work or to help pay rent or living expenses while co-oping.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation has graciously given the Co-op Assistance Award $10,000 to distribute to students on the Daytona Beach campus. Please see last week’s blog about how to apply for the Co-op Assistance Award for summer 2017 here.
Below are the testimonials from students who received the award for summer 2016.
