College of DuPage was recently awarded a $22,500 grant from the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program supported by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
This program provides grants to support education-related work experiences that benefit students academically and financially. Through this funding, DuPage County employer-partners have committed to hire, supervise and evaluate COD students from the following programs: Computer Information Systems and Technology, Horticulture, Business Administration, Marketing, Accounting, Biological Sciences, Automotive Technology, and Paralegal Services.
These internships provide opportunities for students to apply the concepts and skills learned in the classroom to hands-on activities. In addition, these work study programs help to strengthen partnerships between COD and area businesses, provide community services opportunities and encourage students to seek employment in Illinois.
