COLUMBUS – State Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) today announced that Oberlin College was awarded $149,938 in funds through the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation’s Career Ready Internship program.

“The award of this grant is a testament to Oberlin College’s consistent innovation in preparing its students with the skills and experience they need to be successful in meeting the demands of today’s world,” said Manning.

The Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation awarded a total of $5.2 million to 40 colleges and universities in four states through the expansion of its Career Ready Internship grant, after having successfully piloted the grant in Wisconsin during the 2013-2014 academic year.

The 2014-2015 grant opportunity was offered again in Wisconsin and was expanded to include four-year colleges and universities in Iowa, Minnesota, and Ohio that have partnered with local businesses and nonprofits to develop new paid internships, and convert existing unpaid internships into paid opportunities.

“We know from area employers that internships are important components of student transition into the workplace,” added Manning.  “I am thrilled that Oberlin has been recognized for its commitment to expanding student access to these real-world education opportunities.”
