Application

The application consists of three sections:

  1. Student Summary
  2. Student Essays
  3. Teacher Recommendation

Students can apply online or submit a PDF version of the application. Once applications are reviewed, applicants will be selected for an in-person interview. After student interviews, admission counselors will finalize candidate selections.

Apply Online

Students and teachers can access the online application and teacher recommendation form at the following links:
Student Application / Essay
Teacher Recommendation

Be sure to fill out the online forms in their entirety before submitting. The two forms do not have to be submitted on the same day, but both need to be submitted before the deadline. We recommend that you write out your Essay in a separate document before submitting so that you will have a copy.

Application season for the FBI Chicago Explorer program is currently closed.  Please check back in January 2021 for updates.
