Wichita Tribe Industrial Development Commission, Anadarko Industries LLC and Wichita Tribal Enterprises LLC announce Scholarship Program for Summer Interns

 

Anadarko Industries (AI) and Wichita Tribal Enterprises are putting together a summer intern program that will be specifically set-aside for Wichita Tribal members.  This will be an 8-week program scheduled between June and August for a Wichita student who is in at least their 3rd year of college.  The student will spend eight weeks at AI's and WTE's corporate offices in Houston, TX.  The first half of the program will allow the student to observe and participate in all areas of the business from new business development to proposal submittals to contract operations.  The second half of the program will allow the student to work more in depth in a specialized area based on his or her background and current company activities.  For example, an intern might help with market research, proposal development, financial reporting, mid-year company performance review, or assist with a specific NASA contract.  If timing allows, each intern will also have an opportunity to present the company's annual report at the Wichita annual meeting that is typically held in July.

 

If you have an interest in being considered for this program, please contact Kenn Hall (khall@anadarko-industries.com), AI's Vice President of Operations.  Include a resume, a letter explaining why you wish to be considered for the program with an overview of your career goals and objectives, and a copy of your college transcript or report cards. In the event you need assistance with your submittal information, please contact the WTIDC Office Manager, Jerri Davis, at 405/247-5009 or at 1503 Mission Blvd., Suite D, Anadarko, Oklahoma 73005.
