Notre Dame Students

About the REU Program in Ireland

Notre Dame students can earn valuable research experience in the STEM disciplines through the Naughton Fellowship Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The fellowships offer motivated undergraduates the opportunity to learn through research, gain valuable skills, and be part of a cutting-edge research project. Fellowship recipients will conduct their research within an exciting team atmosphere, working with a faculty mentor, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students.

The program lasts approximately 10 weeks between May and August. Students will receive airfare ($1,500 maximum USD), accommodation (either the University College Dublin summer residences or the Riverside Apartments in Cork), airport pickup upon arrival in Dublin, a cultural enrichment program, and a stipend for food and other living expenses.

Areas of Study

A number of research projects will be available for University of Notre Dame students to participate in Ireland during the upcoming summer. Students will have the opportunity to conduct research at either Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, or University College Dublin.

Please check back soon for updates on next summer's projects.
