WISER Application

WISER Application – Summer 2023

Undergraduate students currently holding Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior status at Loyola University Chicago, regardless of the amount of experience conducting scientific research, are welcome to apply. However, this program is designed for and strongly prefers students not seeking to attend medical, dental, or veterinary school.

WISER Internship opportunities (faculty projects) for summer 2023 will be posted here by February 1, 2023.

When the faculty proposals are available for review, read all of them and choose two that interest you the most. After you have made your choices, create a document that addresses the following points and submit it by March 1st to https://webapps2.luc.edu/lurop/login/login.

  1. Write a brief (one paragraph) autobiography.
  2. Which two faculty projects are most appealing to you? Why?
  3. Have you conducted research in a lab before? If so, briefly explain the project.
  4. What are your greatest strengths as a student?
  5. What are your greatest weaknesses as a student?
  6. If you have already declared a major, tell us what your major is and why you chose it. If you have not yet declared a major, tell us which fields you are considering and what factors could play a role in your final decision.
  7. If you could beam yourself into the future, what do you see your career and/or life being like 10 years from now?
  8. Is there any additional information about yourself that you would like us to consider?
