Nearly 2,500 students at Ohio community colleges, universities, and technical centers will benefit from new or expanded co-op and internship programs thanks to a state investment of close to $11 million over the next two years with matching dollars from key industries across the state. Campuses will create new or expand existing co-op and internship programs to better serve students and businesses.
The grants are part of Governor John Kasich's workforce development strategies to align Ohio's higher education curriculum with skills that are in demand by Ohio's businesses so that students are better positioned for jobs in Ohio after graduation. Ohio businesses benefit by getting a preview of the talent available in Ohio.
The state funding, from casino license fees, is specifically for this purpose. Funding was awarded to 10 community colleges and 15 public or private universities that are partnering with 30 other postsecondary institutions, including 11 Ohio technical centers. Grantees are required to match at least 100 percent of the awarded money with private funds.

Four teams compete for elementary quiz bowl title
On Monday, four elementary quiz bowl teams will compete to be named league champion.
The tournament will start at 4 p.m. at the Wood County Educational Service Center.
According to Jan Fries, quiz bowl coordinator, this year has been a challenge between teams dropping out and the weather.
This year the league has four schools participating: Bowling Green Christian Academy (BGCA), Eastwood, Elmwood and Hilfiker in Gibsonburg.
Last year there were seven teams.
Fries thinks the uncertainty of the league - most notably the WCESC eliminating the county quiz bowl coordinator position three years ago - has caused several schools to drop out.
"Quiz bowl is important to me," said Fries, who retired from Eastwood Schools and quiz bowl coach last year. "I valued it and felt the students deserved to have the opportunity to participate."
She stepped up when last year's league coordinator stepped down as elementary coach.
