Title: International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) (NSF 12-551)
Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)
Amount: $250,000/3 yrs.

Description: The IRES program supports development of globally engaged U.S. science and engineering students capable of performing in an international research environment at the forefront of science and engineering. The program supports active research participation by students enrolled as undergraduates or graduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the NSF. IRES projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the IRES program. In all cases, the IRES students will be recruited and prepared by the U.S. PI(s), then travel to the foreign site to conduct research under the direct supervision of the foreign research mentors. NOTE: Proposals must be submitted by universities/colleges and non-profit academic institutions, not by individual graduate students.
