The American Chemical Society International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program is funded by the National Science Foundation to encourage 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. Participants receive a stipend, support for travel and living expenses, and unique professional development opportunities.
