Paid Summer Internships for College StudentsHelping Students Envision a Future in Wichita

Campus Wichita, an initiative of the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce and W – A Community of Young Professionals, dedicates time and resources to preparing Kansas college and university students for the workforce in Wichita. Through the planning of value-based programming and events and the creation of an engaging Fellows Program, Campus Wichita exposes students to industry and engages them in the community to help them envision a future of living and working in Wichita. The program is supported in large part by the Wichita Educational Foundation.

What We Offer to Students

Paid Summer Internships

With 15 different colleges and universities within one hour and 15 minutes of Wichita, there is a great need for paid summer internships. Our goal is to partner with local employers to provide engaging and experiential paid summer internship opportunities for area college and university students.

Fellows Program 

Our Fellows Program is a structured, application-based summer program that provides professional development and networking opportunities that complement the internships. The Fellows Program is a 6-week experience that helps students gain the soft skills needed for today’s workforce while connecting them to the Wichita community. Students are engaged through experiences, such as, attending W networking events, mentorship and volunteering.

As a successful program of W, the #internICT summer program engages visiting interns during the months of May through August by helping immerse them in the city through unique experiences. A passport containing opportunities to enjoy local businesses helps interns explore Wichita on their own time and ensures interns fall in love with the city. With a kick-off event and a final summer farewell party, we launch and culminate this experience by bringing it full circle.
