CCMR sponsorship is provided through a matching grant from NYS Empire State Development (ESD) to the CCMR.

Please note that the ESD office requires us to report annually economic impacts that resulted from the CCMR-funded internship to demonstrate return on the state’s investment. The partner companies will be contacted by the CCMR up to 5 times over the following 5 years after the completion of the internship to assess their satisfaction with the project and its business impact.

The CCMR will write press releases, success stories and articles with the collaboration of the industrial partners to showcase the CCMR program and the partner company.
