II. National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now taking applications for its 8-week long summer research program for undergraduates (REU) and veterinary students (REV) interested in research at the interface between mathematics and biology. The program takes place May 31- July 22, 2011, on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus. Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fields,veterinary students, and high school math and biology teachers will live on campus and work in teams with UTK faculty. Disease modeling, population dynamics, behavioral ecology and intracellular transport processes are among this year's research topics. Stipend and housing are provided along with some funding for travel.

Application Deadline: February 18, 2011. To apply to the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), go to http://www.nimbios.org/education/reu2011. To apply to the Research Experience for Veterinary Students (REV), go to http://www.nimbios.org/education/rev2011.

III. EPA P3: People Prosperity and Planet College Student Research Grants
EPA's P3 People, Prosperity, and the Planet Program is a unique college competition for designing solutions for a sustainable future that offers students quality hands-on experience. The competition has two phases. For the first phase of the competition, teams are awarded a $15,000 grant to develop their idea. They bring the design in April to the National Sustainable Design Expo in Washington DC to compete for the P3 Award and a grant of $90,000 to take their design to real world application. For more information, visit http://www.epa.gov/ncer/p3/index.html. Applications are due Dec. 22.
