Part of what sets Lake Forest College apart is its wide array of experience-rich internships offered throughout Chicagoland and abroad.

You can earn money or academic credit - or sometimes both - working in your chosen field of study after your sophomore year at the College. Your major’s internship supervisor and professionals at the Career Advancement Center can help you find an internship that’s right for you at a business, social service or governmental agency, or cultural institution. Our proximity to Chicago gives our students nearly boundless internship options.

Students at Lake Forest College may do internships for-credit, which the are specifically linked to their area of study, and not-for-credit. Both academic year and summer internships are generally available. Current students can find available internships listed in the online job/internship database available through the Career Advancement Center. Opportunities for service-based internships can also be found through the Grace Groner Foundation
