Chris Cocores ’05 (history), president & CEO of uFinancial Group, and his wife, Emily ’06 (biology), preschool director at the Silver Spring Presbyterian Church, recently returned to campus to meet with students whose trajectory they’ve changed though the internship program they sponsor.
“Everyone did such different things and such cool things,” says Molly Gun ’24 (creative writing and French and francophone studies), who completed her internship at the Endometriosis Foundation of America. “The only thing we have in common is that none of us would have been able to do this without the help of the Cocores family.”
Internship grants like these help many students engage in internships that may be unpaid or low-paying, as well as students who cannot afford related travel or housing costs for an internship. With that in mind, the Cocoreses hope that by helping more Dickinsonians take on career-building internships, their support will create positive ripples into the future.
