For the seventh 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.
The i2E Fellows program is open to students at any Oklahoma college or university and Oklahoma residents who attend college at an out-of-state campus.
Applications for the 2015 i2E Fellows program are being accepted through Friday, March 27th. 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 Monday, June 1, 2015.
The i2E Fellows program is offered in Oklahoma City with support from 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 federal Economic Development Administration (EDA), the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology and the Oklahoma Business Roundtable.
More than $200,000 has been paid to 40 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.
