For the sixth consecutive year, i2E, Inc., is offering 10-week paid fellowships this summer for Oklahoma college students at entrepreneurial companies in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas.
This year, the i2E Fellows program has been opened to an even broader pool of applicants. Oklahoma residents who attend college at an out-of-state campus are eligible to apply for the fellowship along with students at any Oklahoma college or university.
Applications for the 2014 i2E Fellows program are being accepted through Friday, March 28. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible.
Fellows will earn $6,000 while working full-time on projects designed specifically for their skill sets at i2E client companies in Oklahoma City or Tulsa, or at i2E’s offices in either city. The Fellowships begin June 2.
The i2E Fellows program is offered in Oklahoma City with support from the federal Economic Development Administration (EDA), the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, the Oklahoma Business Roundtable, the City of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and the Presbyterian Health Foundation.
Support in Tulsa for the program is provided by the EDA, the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology and the Oklahoma Business Roundtable.
“We’re pleased to open the i2E Fellows program this year to even more students,” said Scott Meacham, i2E President and CEO. “The Fellows program places students into real-world, entrepreneurial situations where the companies benefit from their expertise, and they gain experience that will help them in future jobs.”
More than $200,000 has been paid to 36 students from campuses across the state who have served as previous i2E Fellows. Many have used the experience to launch their careers with entrepreneurial companies or with their own startup.
