The Undergraduate Training Assistance Program at DIA is accepting applications

 
 

The Undergraduate Training Assistance Program (also known as the STOKES Educational Scholarship Program) was introduced in legislation in 1986. The program is designed to facilitate the recruitment of a small number of high-achieving, mature and committed secondary school seniors and /or college freshman and sophomores interested in a career in public service. These students will be offered tuition assistance to accredited colleges or universities, provided challenging summer work, and guaranteed a position in their field of study upon graduation in this highly competitive program. Minorities, women, and the disabled needing financial assistance to complete their undergraduate education are strongly encouraged to apply. Students will attend classes full-time during the academic year, and work at a DIA location during the summer in positions related to their course of study. While in school, students must maintain an overall cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent) for each semester/quarter thereafter.

Students accepted for this program receive:
- Tuition and mandatory fees (limited to $18,000 per year) toward a four-year degree program at an accredited college or university selected by the student and endorsed by the Agency
- Reimbursement for books and needed supplies
- An annual salary (paid bi-weekly) to cover college room and board expenses and other personal expenses
- Full-time employment in a job related to their academic major during the summer vacation while in college
- Full benefits including health insurance, life insurance and retirement
- Guaranteed position at DIA after graduation appropriate to their skills and abilities
