Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Internships

In honor of one of Kappa Delta’s most notable alumnae, the Kappa Delta Foundation provides funding for two Kappa Delta collegians to serve as paid summer interns for the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s Art and Leadership Program for Girls in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Founded in 1998, the program provides adolescent girls, 11-13 years of age, with opportunities for independent thinking, skill-building, problem-solving and the development of their artistic talents. Interns lead art and leadership lessons, assist and participate in professional guest-artist workshops, co-lead field trips and help prepare a final exhibition of student art work.

Any initiated Kappa Delta is encouraged to apply. Upperclassmen with experience in art history or studio art are preferred. A $3,000 stipend is provided by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. Interns are responsible for their own housing and transportation. A vehicle is strongly recommended.

The application window for 2022 has closed. See the application timeline above.

Orthopaedic Research Internships

Each summer, the Kappa Delta Foundation offers an opportunity for Kappa Delta collegians to intern at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis, Tennessee. This internship is a great addition to KD’s long-standing support of orthopaedic research through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

With direction by Kappa Delta alumna Karen Hasty, Ph.D., and other acclaimed orthopaedic researchers, interns work on a basic science research project and participate in a weekly research data conference and journal club. They also attend orthopaedic surgery training conferences given by faculty from Campbell Clinic, an internationally recognized orthopaedic clinic.

Housing is provided by the foundation, and interns receive an expense reimbursement provided by the Kappa Delta Foundation through UTHSC. Interns are responsible for their own transportation to and from Memphis and during the duration of the internship.

The program is open to students who are able to live in the Chicago area during the term of the internship or to students open to working remotely for one of PCAA’s staff members located around the country. For questions, contact Bart Klika, PCAA’s chief research officer.
