The Rutgers Graduate COP Program. COP Bulletin 4; Vol. 2, 1974-75.
The Rutgers University Career Opportunities Program (GCOP) was designed to give graduate opportunities to otherwise excluded groups. Presently the program requires 60 credit hours of college from applicants, although a baccalaureate degree is not required. Almost without exception GCOP students are non-white and poor, and the program often provides a stipend of up to $5,200 a year to interns who cannot otherwise afford to go to school. In an effort to describe the program, this report emphasizes evaluation, origin of the concept, implementation of the program, source of funds, student profiles, changes of the program, student evaluation, evaluators, and a brief overview of the success of GCOP.
