YSU Students Support Government Contracting

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Fourteen business students have been selected to participate in the pilot Ohio Procurement Internship Program in the Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University.

Students selected for the program completed specialized coursework in government contracting this spring semester and have been matched with an Ohio company for full-time paid summer internships.

Internship projects include procurement compliance, market research, market expansion and government sales strategy plans.

The program, created by the Ohio Department of Development, is being offered at YSU as a pilot initiative. It provides an opportunity for businesses interested in expanding government contracting activities to leverage the skills and knowledge of specially trained college students.
