We are still awaiting news about the funding status of the proposed summer research program in material science with destinations in Singapore, Italy, and the United Kingdom. However, because of the advanced date, we regrettably will not be able to offer the IREU during summer 2013. We hope that we will be back in 2014. Please check this space for further updates in the fall.
In the meantime, you’re encouraged to visit the NSF REU search for a listing of other available undergraduate summer research programs. If you are interested in an opportunity in Germany, consider applying to the German Academic Exchange Service’s RISE program.
Please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

The ACS International Research Experience for Undergraduates (IREU) program gives nine undergraduate students an opportunity to pursue cutting-edge materials science research at universities in Singapore, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Participating institutions are recognized as top producers of scientific knowledge.
Students spend 10 weeks working on frontier 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 cover travel, living expenses, insurance, pre-departure orientation, language instruction, and presenting research at an ACS national meeting.
