I wanted to share an opportunity for your students called a sponsorship.  This is one of the ways our industry partners build their talent pool, and students get the assistance to pay for their education AND know where they will work before they even take their first class at OSUIT. 

Fowler Holding Company (operates Ford, Toyota, Honda, Chrysler and Volkswagen dealerships in the Tulsa & OKC areas) is looking for students to sponsor into our automotive programs.  Sponsorship means: 

  • Selected students are provided financial support with their college education costs. 
  • Paid internships throughout the entire program and employment during school breaks.  Our students generally earn the cost of tuition through these paid internships! 
  • Guaranteed employment at the sponsoring dealership upon successful completion of internships and graduation with their AAS degree in Automotive Technology. 
  • Support to pay off student loans once employed at the dealership. 

Fowler Holding Company is looking for students to start college in Fall 2021: 

  • 6 students interested in Ford (Tulsa area)
  • 2 students interested in Toyota (Tulsa area)
  • 2 students interested in Honda (OKC area)
  • 3 students interested in Chrysler (OKC area)
  • 3 students interested in Volkswagen (OKC area)

I have attached a referral form that anyone can fill out.  I am happy to speak with students, parents, employees of the high schools and school district, you name it!  We'll also set up tours of the automotive programs and dealerships so parents and students can learn more about this opportunity. 

Please contact me with any questions at sablew@okstate.edu or 918-293-5296.
