Participants receive free university apartment-style housing, a stipend 
of $4500, and up to $650 of support for travel to/from Knoxville.

*2019 Projects:* This year's research projects are modeling biochemical 
pathways for aerotaxis in motile bacteria; modeling climate as a driver 
of change in human-wildlife interactions; investigating viral infection 
rates of marine phytoplankton; modeling cell differentiation; and 
modeling networking and the opioid epidemic . Applicants will be asked 
to select their first, second and third project choices.

*Who may apply? *
Students enrolled in an undergraduate program and not scheduled to 
graduate prior to August 1, 2019 may apply. /*Applicants must be U.S.
