submitted by moralesj@augsburg.edu

The Midco Scholars Program is a partnership between Midcontinent Communications (Midco) and Augsburg University which provides opportunities for underrepresented students to explore a career in business/IT and gain relevant work experience. This semester, up to 4 students will be selected to become Midco Scholars. Each Scholar will take part in monthly professional development workshops, receive a $2,500 scholarship, and will also have the opportunity to apply for a competitive full-time Summer 2019 internship with Midco, either in their Sioux Falls, SD or Edina, MN offices. (Internships will more likely take place in Sioux Falls, so applicants should be available to live in Sioux Falls for the summer – housing is available).

-Have a major or minor in MIS, Computer Science, Mathematics, Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Data Analytics or other business related fields
