Internships & Co-ops

Student of the Month/Student of the Year

In an effort to acknowledge outstanding NIU students who have completed a career-related work experience through Career Services, we select a group of students who have excelled on the job.

Student of the Month

We select seven internship/co-op students throughout the year and honor each as an Internship/Co-op Student of the Month for the months of February, March, June, July, August, September, and October.

Student of the Year

Then in March of the following year, we pick three of these Internship/Co-op Student of the Month winners to be recognized as NIU Internship/Co-op Student of the Year -- Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.
