The National Science Foundation awarded an International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) grant to fund Carroll University’s Chemistry Research Education Abroad and Transcultural Experience (CREATE).

Over the next three years, the $250,000 grant will build upon existing program for undergraduate chemistry and biochemistry students to provide fifteen students with 12-week summer research experiences at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.

Students will develop cross-disciplinary scientific skills by completing research projects under the tutelage of scientists who are preeminent in their fields. These summer internships will be particularly valuable in educating students on how to live and work in a cross-cultural environment.
