The chancellor of the Ohio board of regents shall require each state institution of higher education that the controlling board approves to receive an award under the Ohio co-op/internship program to enter into an agreement governing the use of the award. The agreement shall contain terms the chancellor determines to be necessary, which shall include performance measures, reporting requirements, and an obligation to fulfill pledges of other institutional, public, or nonpublic resources for the proposal. The chancellor may require a state institution of higher education that violates the terms of its agreement to repay the award plus interest at the rate required by section 5703.47 of the Revised Code to the chancellor. If the chancellor makes an award to a program or initiative that is intended to be implemented by a state institution of higher education in collaboration with other state institutions of higher education or nonpublic Ohio universities or colleges, the chancellor may enter into an agreement with the collaborating universities or colleges that permits awards to be received directly by the collaborating universities or colleges consistent with the terms of the program or initiative. In that case, the chancellor shall incorporate into the agreement terms consistent with the requirements of this section.
