International Research Experience for Students (IRES)
We are delighted to announce that the proposed 2014 program in materials science and chemistry has received funding from the NSF. The program will be sending eight undergraduates from the United States to Germany starting in 2014. Working with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), The program will also be placing approximately eight German students into U.S. university summer programs starting next year as well.
Applications for both directions will be due at the end of January. Please watch this space for further updates and links.

About the program
The ACS International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program would provide eight undergraduate students an opportunity to pursue cutting-edge chemistry and materials science research at universities across Germany and the United States. Participating institutions are recognized as top producers of scientific knowledge.
Students would spend 10 weeks working on frontier chemistry and materials science research projects under the guidance of faculty members and graduate student mentors to sharpen scientific skills, develop collaborations with scientists abroad, and experience the life and culture of a foreign country.
Awards would provide for travel, living expenses, insurance, pre-departure orientation, language instruction, and presenting research at an ACS national meeting.
