Reaching out to area college and university faculty, but this is not about you.
The ACS Office of External Affairs/Global Outreach is launching a new program for summer, 2020, offering a few select undergraduates a research and cultural opportunity that really should not be missed. Please pass the word at your first opportunity; the application deadline is February 10th!
The International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) Program is an exchange program that allows talented young chemical and materials scientists to spend a summer conducting research in another country. Undergraduate students will spend 10-12 weeks working on frontier chemical and materials science research projects under the guidance of faculty mentors to sharpen scientific skills, develop collaborations with scientists abroad, and experience the life and culture of a foreign country.
For the summer of 2020, up to five students from the United States will be selected to conduct research at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Applicants have the opportunity to choose among three laboratory projects, working closely with NUS professors over the course of the summer. The entire program will be conducted in English, so no special language fluency is required. Only US citizens or permanent residents enrolled at a US university or college are eligible.
Deadline: Monday, February 10, 2020, at 11:29 pm EST. Details of the available projects and faculty mentors, as well as an online application are at the ACS IRES Singapore program page or email IRES@acs.org.
