I would like to call your attention to the prestigious American Chemical Society International Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program (ACS-IREU) for students majoring in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Materials Science, or Chemical Engineering. This program is funded by the National Science Foundation, in partnership with the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD), the German Chemical Society (GDCh), the European Chemistry Thematic Network (ECTN), and several universities across Europe.
21-25 sophomores and juniors with one semester or summer of prior research experience will be selected to receive the ACS-IREU Scholarship to conduct research during the summer of 2010 at selected institutions in Germany, France, Italy and the UK. Detailed information and online application and recommendation forms can be found on their web site www.acs.org/ireu.
Although helpful, no foreign language expertise is required. All qualified students, including females and members of underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is January 31, 2010.
