Conducting research alongside a UT faculty member during the summer is a great way to enhance your knowledge and interact with faculty outside of the classroom setting.
The Office of Undergraduate Research funds a summer internship program to promote research and creative activity among undergraduate students. All current full-time undergraduate students enrolled at the Knoxville campus are eligible to apply. Students graduating in May or August 2015 are not eligible.
The online application can be found here, and deadline is February 13, 2015:http://ugresearch.utk.edu/opportunities/summer-internships/
