Summer Link

A program that places qualified U-High students in paid summer internships with University of Chicago professors and institutes, Chicago businesses, and local organizations

Internships are available through different Summer Link channels:

  • Science Summer Link
  • Business, Social Sciences, and Humanities Summer Link
  • Internship for Civic Engagement
  • Computer Science

Through each Summer Link program, students get a glimpse of real-world activities and have hands-on experiences not normally available to high school students. Each of the three Summer Link programs has its own application process.

Current students will be invited to apply via Schoology in December–January.

Past placements include:
  • Professors in business, economics, law, and public policy
  • Institutions such as the University Press, the Logan Center for the Arts, Civic Knowledge Project, and the Game Changer Chicago Design Lab
  • Private business employers such as Citadel, Morningstar, and Allston Trading, and organizations like the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust
  • UChicago physics, biology, molecular biology, neurochemistry, and computer science labs
