International Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (iSURE)

As the largest summer REU for visiting students among top US universities, the iSURE program provides opportunities for international undergraduate and Master's students to participate in research projects at the University of Notre Dame. Students will gain valuable hands-on experience and exposure to real-life scientific problem-solving and learning by working closely with Notre Dame faculty and graduate students on a variety of ongoing cutting-edge research.

On-campus housing is provided for all iSURE students throughout the program as well as a series of activities and events to engage iSURE cohorts with other summer students. Some of the signature events include:
