ACS International Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (IREU) - Summer 2016

On behalf of the ACS International Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (IREU), it is my pleasure to announce that the program is now open!

The IREU program, funded by two separate grants from the National Science Foundation, enables up to 17 U.S. undergraduate students to participate in a ten week research internship in either Italy, Germany, Singapore or the United Kingdom. The IREU program especially encourages underrepresented minorities in sciences, first generational university students, and those with limited international experience to apply.

Please share the attached flyer with students in your chemistry, chemical engineering and material sciences program. Deadline for completed applications is January 25, 2016.

Students can view the application and learn more about the ACS IREU at Please forward this message to interested colleagues and potential applicants.

ACS also makes an effort to place top bachelor-level students from Germany, Italy and Singapore in U.S. labs (funded by their home institution). If you are interested in receiving an student researcher from these countries in your lab in 2016, please contact me.

Sincerely yours,
