Students participate in basic or clinical oncology research, research and clinical conferences, and a core lecture series designed specifically for them. All participants make a PowerPoint presentation on their research project and submit a report on their research project written in the style of a journal in which their faculty mentor publishes. A primary goal of the POE program is to encourage students to pursue a career in cancer research. Thus, we are particularly interested in highly qualified students with a serious career interest in cancer research, either as a clinical scientist or laboratory-based research scientist. Prior research experience is required for all applicants. The POE 2014 class average undergraduate GPA was 3.80. In 2014, 51 students from 39 schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia were selected from 500 applicants. POEs must be United States citizens, non-citizen nationals, or possess a visa permitting permanent residence in the United States (required by the funding agency). All must have completed at least their college sophomore year by the time they participate. The minimum requirement is 11 weeks during Summer 2015. All POE applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.40 (on a 4.0 scale) in math and science (biology, chemistry, and physics) and at least a 3.40 overall. The remuneration is $4,000. Fully furnished group housing adjacent to our campus is provided at no cost for non- local participants. The POE home page <http://www.stjude.org/poe> contains links to the program application. The deadline for receipt of all 2015 application materials is February 1, 2015. Early application is highly recommended, since we make some early placements. Letters of recommendation sent as PDF attachments to email are requested. Members of under-represented ethnic minority groups and women are particularly encouraged to apply, since one of our major long-term program goals is to increase the diversity of persons engaged in oncology research and practice. Our NIH/NCI-funded (2 P30CA021765-34S1) Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) grant provides remuneration for additional undergraduate under-represented minority POE Program participants.

They may take courses at the College, in the Graduate Divisions of the Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities, and at the graduate schools in Divinity, Public Policy, Social Work, Business, and Law. Some stay for only a single quarter; others stay for an entire academic year or longer. -GSAL students come to the University of Chicago in order to build on their undergraduate studies, while other students use the program to explore different disciplines beyond their college majors. -GSAL students will receive a University of Chicago transcript with grades, and might also receive letters of recommendation from faculty members who have worked with them. These efforts result in a more competitive application to graduate school. -GSAL students take advantage of in-depth academic advising, student success skills workshops and resources for graduate school applications or career planning. Who will benefit from the GSAL program? -Graduating seniors or recent graduates who are still unsure about which field of graduate study to pursue are encouraged to connect with us soon, so that we can help them navigate the course selection at the University of Chicago (timeschedules.uchicago.edu) and support their exploration of courses and fields of subject interest, before they apply to graduate or professional schools. -For students or alums who feel they would like to focus more into a field of study and gain additional course and research training, or take more courses in a new field of study to switch interest fields in graduate school, we will be able to help them enroll in appropriate courses, build professional relationships with faculty mentors, engage in research, and provide supportive advising guidance and resources for successful graduate school applications. Important GSAL Admissions Considerations We admit students in all academic quarters, and our next academic quarter begins Spring, which begins March 28th and ends June 11th, 2016. Our Admissions Deadline is MARCH 15th, 2016. We do not require Letters of Recommendation, or GRE test scores. Each undergraduate or graduate course costs $2,915 and business school courses $6,338.
