Nonprofit Internship Partners

Chicago nonprofit organizations are selected by invitation only by the James S. Kemper Foundation to partner as internship host sites for Kemper Scholars during their post-sophomore summer work experience in the city.

Organizations provide high-quality full-time summer internships and mentorship to help Kemper Scholars develop the professional skills required to successfully contribute to any organization and to tackle projects that have an important impact on the community.
