i2E seeks applicants for 2013 summer fellows program

Business incubator i2E (Innovation to Enterprise) is offering a paid 10-week fellowship this summer at an entrepreneurial company in Tulsa or Oklahoma City.

Applications for the 2013 i2E Fellows program are being accepted through March 15. 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 or at i2E's offices in either city. The Fellowships begin June 3.

"We're pleased to be able to offer the i2E Fellows program again this summer with support from our federal and state partners," said Scott Meacham, i2E president and CEO. "Not only do the students benefit from the experience of working in an entrepreneurial environment, but the companies gain from the expertise and enthusiasm these students bring to the Fellowships."

Now in its fifth year, the i2E Fellows program is offered in Oklahoma City with support from the federal Economic Development Administration, 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.

A total of 31 college students have served as previous i2E Fellows, and many have used the fellowship to launch their careers with entrepreneurial companies or with their own startup endeavor.
