WISE - information for the Fall of 2016
This fall of 2016, all returning Lycoming College students are invited to apply for the Williamsport Internship Summer Experience (WISE). Selected students will be matched with partners to complete a 10-week internship experience consisting of 35-40 working hours/week.
To be considered for WISE, a student will need to complete and upload the following documents:
- Completed application
- Personal statement
- Recommendation forms* (2)
- Unofficial transcript (demonstrating appropriate course work and good academic standing)
Information Session: Monday, November 7th, 2016. 4:30PM in Heim G11.
Application Deadline : Friday, January 20th, 2017
Group Interview: TBA
Results Announcement: TBA
*recommendation forms should be sent, in a sealed envelop, directly to the Center for Enhanced Academic Experiences, via campus mail (Box 2).
Candidates for WISE will be selected based on the quality of their application package and an interview with the WISE committee. Final placement will be determined by an interview and approval by the internship partner. Selected WISE students will be required to participate in a 10-week professional development program.
The College, student and internship partner will work together to create specific learning objectives for the student. During the duration of the internship, students will meet weekly with a member of the WISE Committee to reflect on their personal experience. The weekly meetings will assist the interns in examining their own values, interests, and leadership style by posing problems, setting boundaries, and facilitating the learning process as it relates to their internship experience.
WISE, at its most fundamental basis, will provide students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year at the College with a resume building opportunity, workforce experience in a field of interest, assistance in choosing/confirming a major and time management skills between their work and personal life.
