As a member of Kappa you have the opportunity to garner real-world experience by interning with us. Each summer during a 12-week period, we offer two internships, the Fraternity Headquarters internship and the Catherine Schroeder Graf Heritage Museum internship.
You’ll also find some of your questions answered here.
What is required during the internship?
The interns are required to maintain a full-time work schedule at Fraternity Headquarters, five days a week, 7 – 7.5 hours a day.
What will I work on?
Projects vary by internship. As the Fraternity Headquarters intern you can expect to work on Convention preparation (even years), Leadership Academy preparation and various other department help. The program can be tailored to the intern’s major. The Heritage Museum intern can expect to “get her hands dirty” in Kappa’s archives while learning about women’s history.
When do I start?
On a Convention year, the intern must begin the program two to three weeks before the start of Convention – typically by June 1. If the intern is a student, the dates will be determined based upon the end of her school semester.
Is this a paid internship?
Yes. The internships are paid positions at $8.15 an hour. Tuition reimbursement of $500 is available for course credit for the Heritage Museum internship, but must be arranged prior to the beginning of the internship.
Where will I live?
Housing is provided at Fraternity Headquarters in a fully furnished, two-bedroom apartment.
Is there any travel during the 12 weeks?
When the internship is during a Convention year, the interns may travel to Convention. When the internship is not during a Convention year, the interns will accompany the Archivist/Curator to The Stewart House in Monmouth, Illinois.
Do I need a car?
Although the intern apartment is located on property, a car is recommended for personal trips to the grocery store, events, concerts, etc.
What are some Columbus, Ohio highlights?
In addition to being the home of the Columbus Clippers, Crew and the Ohio State University, Columbus also hosts many festivals, outside concerts and events each summer. Many are within walking distance of Fraternity Headquarters. A summer highlight in Columbus is the largest firework display in the Midwest - Red, White and Boom.
