Paid Internships

Interns gain hands-on experience in the areas of education, horticulture, or research. In addition, as part of their training, interns are required to attend educational programming to broaden their general exposure to public horticulture and research. The educational component consists of lectures, field trips, and workshops offered through the Joseph Regenstein, Jr. School of the Chicago Botanic Garden.

In addition to being a paid internship, our intern benefits may include complimentary general admission to cultural institutions, Garden membership, library access, Café and Gift Shop discount.

Most interns work between 37.5 and 40 hours per week. Internships are paid internships unless otherwise indicated. Interns are responsible for finding housing. International students are accepted. Check back for more information on additional opportunities.
