International Summer Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

The Wisconsin MRSEC International Research Experiences Program (IREP) was initiated in fall 2013 to formalize and expand on undergraduate and graduate research-based student exchanges with partner universities. A particular focus of the MRSEC has been directed towards partner institutions in Asia, because these experiences provide students with skills necessary to work in countries that have cultures and languages that are distinct from the US. Partners currently include Zhejiang University in China, Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan, City University of Hong Kong, and the National University of Singapore. Since inception, 24 students have participated in these programs.

Listed below are four research-based summer internship opportunities. The Wisconsin MRSEC offers scholarships to be used towards participation in these programs for eligible applicants.

~~~Applications are now closed for the Tokyo Institute of Technology programs for summer 2017.~~~
~~~Applications are now closed for the City University of Hong Kong and National University of Singapore programs for summer 2017.~~~
