International research experience with real-world impact

The mission of the Naughton Fellowship Ph.D. Student Exchange Program was to enable strong Ph.D. students to experience an international education in the leading universities of Ireland and the University of Notre Dame. The program facilitated broad cross-cultural training for exceptional doctoral students with leadership potential in mutually enriching fields, collaborative research among the engineers and scientists who train them, and deeper and stronger ties between the host institutions and countries.

This program ran from 2009 to 2019.
