Scholarships – Summer Intern Position with The Shawnee Language Immersion Program (SLIP)

Reason for Internship

             The Shawnee Language Immersion Program (SLIP) is still in the process of working on the ILDA Database, which is an ongoing process that will last for the next few years. ILDA allows us to consolidate language materials from all resources that relate to Shawnee Language. The ILDA database gives us a breakdown of our language into its basic grammar components while also providing our tribal citizens with a functioning online dictionary, with audio, and assisting with valuable grammar knowledge.  However, it will take countless hours to input our data to the ILDA database. By our estimates, it will take 1 to 3 years to complete the data entry from the resources that are currently in our possession.  We feel that it is necessary to create paid internships for 3 college level tribal citizens, one intern from each of the Shawnee Tribes for a total of 3 internships, to streamline the data entry process.

Intern Job Description

             The duties of the interns will be strictly data entry and they will report directly to the Tribal Linguist. The intern will train, under the direction of the Tribal Linguist, how to properly input data to the ILDA database from our language resources.  The Tribal Linguist will review and approve all entries before finalizing them in the database.  Workdays will be Monday through Thursday, 6 hours per day for a total of 24 hours per week during business hours of 9 AM to 5 PM.  Internship will begin on May 23, 2022, and end August 5, 2022, for a total of 11 weeks with 10 paid working weeks and 1 unpaid week for personal leave. 

Requirements

  • Must be a member of one of the 3 Shawnee Tribes.
  • Must be currently enrolled college level student at accredited university.
  • Must be familiar with Microsoft Office with emphasis to Excel spread sheets.
  • Must have internet availability. 
  • Must have a laptop or desktop computer.
  • Must be able to follow directions and pay attention to detail.
  • Must be dependable.

Compensation

The interns will be paid $10.00 per hour for each hour worked.  Upon satisfactory completion of the internships, the interns will also be rewarded a $3000.00 scholarship toward tuition and fees.

To apply please send your resume by May 6, 2022 to joel@shawnee-tribe.com.
