Corporate Partners Fund

Rachael DiSciulllo on co-op in Costa Rica funded by the Corporate Partners Fund.

The Steinbright Corporate Partners Fund affords Drexel University undergraduate co-op students the opportunity to obtain financial support to pursue enriching co-op opportunities. Funds are available to students who are interested in a co-op position outside of the Delaware Valley in a national or international location, as well as to students who have an interest in working in an unpaid co-op position at a non-profit organization. The program, which is open to students of all majors, provides funding based on the applicant's motivation to work for a non-profit and/or in a national or international location. If awarded funding, recipients will be notified prior to the deadline for ranking A-Round job offers (if applicable). The goal of this program is to encourage students to pursue an exceptional co-op experience which would otherwise be financially challenging.

Questions about the program and the application process should be submitted to SCPFund@drexel.edu.
