Make a Difference by Taking Part in Summer Internship Opportunities at Sigma Chi
The Sigma Chi International Fraternity offers two separate internship opportunities throughout the summer months. One is with Sigma Chi International Headquarters supporting the Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, while the other is affiliated with the Horizons leadership development program.
Please read the descriptions below to see which of the two options you are most interested in pursuing. The applications for each internship are separate, but undergraduates are allowed to apply for both opportunities. Traditionally, undergraduate members can only be accepted into one or the other each year.
Headquarters Summer Internship
Sigma Chi Fraternity International Headquarters is an excellent place to learn and hone your professional skills while advancing the interests of our Order. Here you will find brotherhood, opportunity, responsibility, challenge and reward. This year, the Fraternity is offering the opportunity for five (5) exceptional brothers to work as summer interns at Sigma Chi Fraternity International Headquarters in Evanston, Ill. The majority of the internships will run for four (4) weeks, starting in July and ending with Balfour LTW in August. One (1) intern will start in June, assist with Grand Council/Grand Chapter, and end after Balfour LTW. Interns will have the opportunity to be involved with almost every aspect of the Fraternity's operations, and will receive travel, housing and eating allowances, as well as ample time to enjoy the sights and sounds of Chicago. In addition, each intern will receive a scholarship for his services.
Headquarters is looking for brothers with a deep personal commitment to the Fraternity, excellent organizational abilities, exemplary verbal and written communication skills, a team-oriented philosophy with a good sense of humor, and the ability to meet deadlines. Proficiency with Microsoft Office (Excel spreadsheets, database, etc.) and having the ability to juggle multiple projects at once is a plus.
How to Apply
The application can be found in PDF form here, or in .doc form here. Please submit the application and all supplemental materials to Scott Ritter, leadership programs coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 1.

Sigma Chi is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from all qualified candidates.
Horizons Summer Internship
The Sigma Chi Fraternity has taken great strides in continually providing leadership development opportunities for each of its undergraduate members. In addition to participating in the Horizons leadership development program, undergraduates are also eligible to serve the Fraternity as an intern on the logistics team the year after attending Horizons as a participant.
Undergraduates applying for the Horizons summer internship must be past participants in the Horizons leadership program. The primary role interns play is that of a liaison between Horizons participants and Headquarters staff. Interns are responsible for establishing contact with each and every Horizons participant to ensure that the participants are adequately prepared for their sessions.
The interns’ secondary responsibilities include serving as a critical member of Team Aspen, the onsite logistical team, during the session. Interns will provide logistical support in addition to contributing to critical planning and development decisions that will ensure the proper, efficient and successful execution of the session.
