How many interns get selected into the program?
There will be 20 internships of $5,000 each for the students selected into program.
How do I apply to the program?
Student applicants should submit their resume and completed application to email@example.com with the subject line "KEIP Student Application Submission."
What are the criteria for selection?
Decisions to provide a matching stipend are based upon the involvement of the student, the relevance of the summer internship to long-term career goals, and the overall demand for support. Stipends are restricted to Kellogg School students in the first summer between their first and second years at Kellogg.
What if I apply and my internship falls through with the company listed on the application?
Your status in KEIP is contingent upon retention of the internship with the company listed on your application. If that opportunity falls through, you must withdraw from the program and reapply with a new internship and host company.
I am a second year student; can I apply to the program?
Unfortunately, this internship is strictly for first year students. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information about opportunities for second year students, or refer to the Career Management Services system for other internship and project opportunities.
What types of companies qualify for the matching stipend?
Companies span a variety of industries and functions. However, companies must meet the following criteria:
- Must employ between 1 and 150 employees
- KEIP intern must work directly for senior management
- Must have annual revenues of up to $50 million
- Must match the $5,000 stipend granted by the Levy Institute and the Kellogg Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative (KIEI)
- VC firms in a startup phase or VC portfolio companies
What if I have not identified a company; can I still apply to the program?
Yes, you may still apply. All potential host companies are encouraged to post their opportunities in the Career Management Services system (CMS). You may go there to view internship opportunities. The Levy Institute and KIEI can assist you in locating an entrepreneurial internship opportunity. The staff of the Career Management Center can assist as well.
Can I work on my own company over the summer?
No, this program is designed for students to gain entrepreneurial experience at an outside firm. Contact KIEI at email@example.com for information on programming, incubator access, and other opportunities for student businesses.
