State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced today that the state has approved $300,000 for higher education institutions in Northeast Ohiofor the administration and development of the Choose Ohio First Co-op and Internship Program through Kent State University.


“Real-world experience is critical for new Ohio graduates,” Rep. Clyde said. “I look forward to even more opportunities for Kent State students to improve their skills and making meaningful connections with Ohio employers through the Choose Ohio First Program.”


The Choose Ohio First Co-op and Internship Program was signed into law by former Governor Ted Strickland in 2008 to promote and encourage cooperative education programs and internships for students at Ohio universities. These programs will attract students to study in Ohio and stay in Ohio after graduation. 


Additionally, the Choose Ohio First program will support the growth of Ohio's businesses by providing them with Ohio's most talented students. Special emphasis will be placed on opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical fields.


Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and central and southern Portage County.
