FAQ

  1. I am a senior in high school. Can I apply for this program?
    • Unfortunately no. We accept applications in the spring of each school year for acceptance into the following school year’s program. At this time, we only accept students in high school.
  2. I don’t get straight A’s. Should I still apply?
    • Absolutely! We are not necessarily looking for straight A students. We are looking for students who set examples for their peers and who have the desire and potential to be leaders in their communities.
  3. I am nervous about the time commitment. How much time does the program actually require?
    • There are twelve 2 hour sessions throughout the course of the school year. Each session is held on a Thursday. In addition, there is an Orientation session at the beginning of each school year and a Graduation ceremony at the end of each school year.
  4. I live in a Chicago suburb.  Am I still eligible to apply?
    • As long as you can arrive at the FBI Chicago Office (2111 W. Roosevelt Rd) by 4:30pm on Thursdays, you are eligible to apply.
