Application are accepted on a rolling basis.
What interns have to say about their experience with Ingenuity:
"Designing the Partner Starter Institute allowed me to work with a range of staff members as I created the invitation list, developed content, spread the word, and finally executed. I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked on such a dynamic project as it has greatly prepared me for the next step."
"I plan to continue working in the public education sector, advancing District policy through programming and advocacy efforts. I am eager for what is to come and cannot wait to see Ingenuity enter the next phase of their work. Thank you for a great summer!"
"Interning at Ingenuity was a challenging extension of my graduate studies that exposed me to strategic thinking and innovation in the Chicago education arena. I was immediately welcomed into the team and experienced a fantastic office culture that valued the input of all staff members. I left the internship as a more critical thinker because of the opportunities I had to contribute extensively to the Data & Research and Public Policy initiatives. If you want an internship experience that integrates you within the team and organizes your work so you maximize your time with the company, look no further than the team at Ingenuity."
