About the program
The ACS International Research Experiences for Undergraduates (IREU) and ACS International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program are bilateral exchanges that allows talented young chemical and materials scientists to spend a summer conducting research in another country.

Students spend 10-12 weeks working on frontier chemical 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.

In the summer of 2014, 17 students from the United States will be selected to conduct research in Germany, Italy, Singapore, or the United Kingdom through the program.

Conversely, 8-10 students from all of Germany (through DAAD RISE worldwide) and 1-3 students from each of the partner institutions in Italy (University of Perugia), Singapore (National University of Singapore), and the United Kingdom (University of Strathclyde) will be selected to conduct summer research at a university in United States of their choosing.
