Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
The American Chemical Society (ACS) International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program is a bilateral exchange 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.

For this summer, up to 5 students from the United States will be selected to conduct research in Germany through the program. Research in Germany is conducted in tandem with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). All projects in Germany will be conducted in English, so you do not need language proficiency to qualify.

This program is only for U.S. undergraduate students enrolled at a U.S. institution. Students must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students do not need to be a member of ACS nor is membership status a criterion used in judging applicants.

For more information, please visit www.acs.org/ires or email us at IRES@acs.org.
