Tick INsiders Application

Each year we seek highly motivated high school students (grades 9-12) with an interest in public health, infectious disease, entomology, and environmental science to join the Tick INsiders project in Spring-Summer.

To participate, please fill out the application below and watch the tick sampling videos. To watch the videos, click here

As in 2018, qualifying applicants will also have the opportunity to visit campus in fall 2019 for a “Day on Campus” where they will meet the Tick INsiders team, tour facilities, and see science in action. This “science immersion” will provide students with an insight into sample and data analysis, and how their efforts have contributed to an understanding of tick-borne disease risk in Indiana. 2018 participants are strongly encouraged to apply.
