Hello friends and colleagues,

Michigan Technological University and CUAHSI have opened the application
portal and begun advertising for the Summer 2021 International Research
Experience for Students (IRES) program in El Salvador. The program centers
around an 8-week interdisciplinary summer research experience for graduate
students in select communities of El Salvador from June 15 - August 6,
2021. We anticipate it will be different in 2021 due to the pandemic, but
we're cautiously optimistic that we'll be able to implement the summer
experience. Please share broadly with students and colleagues; the flier is
linked below.

Deadline to apply is January 31, 2021.
