Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunity at the University of Notre Dame

My name is Kailey Preston, and I manage several short-term, non-degree seeking programs for international students at the University of Notre Dame. I am writing today to share a summer research opportunity that may be of interest to your undergraduate students. Prior to my time at Notre Dame, I was an instructor in the School of Languages and Cultures at Purdue and had the pleasure of teaching many undergraduate Engineering students. I was impressed with their high academic achievement, so I wish to invite any interested Purdue Engineering students to apply to our International Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (iSURE) Program!

The iSURE program is an individual or small-group research experience that pairs exceptional international undergraduate applicants with Notre Dame faculty to work on a research project or in a lab setting. Below is more information about the program, and it would be great if you could forward this information along to any interested students:
