Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI) is an intensive summer research experience for undergraduates, dedicated to preparing undergraduate students, specifically underrepresented minorities, for the challenges of graduate school-level research in applied mathematics and biology. Select students are invited to Arizona State University for roughly eight weeks, where their time is split between classroom instruction on research methods and hands-on research projects. At MTBI, students select their own research topics, not faculty. By the end of the summer, students have completed a high-quality technical report and research poster, which are presented at national conferences to an audience of their peers and colleagues.
