The department administers ten student award funds, through the Brockport Foundation.

New York State Assembly and Senate Internship Scholarships

  • Thomas J. Gosdeck ’73 Legislative Internship Fund
    • Supports students admitted to the NY State Assembly Internship Program and NY State Senate Undergraduate Legislative Session Assistants Program with a career goal in public service.

The Department is forever grateful to Mr. Thomas Gosdeck for establishing and funding the internship program in his name. We apologize that we excluded the NYS Senate as an option for student opportunities for 2022-23, despite the Senate Program being the basis for his decision to make this opportunity available to our students. We understand the importance of including both programs on an equal basis. This matter has been resolved for next year and the future. We thank Mr. Gosdeck for his immense generosity and dedication to our students and the University. We sincerely apologize for our failure to honor the commitments we made when he established this Fund. In the years ahead, we will endeavor to honor his wishes.
