The United States needs to educate a globally-engaged science and engineering workforce capable of performing in an international research environment in order to remain at the forefront of world science and technology. To support this aim, the Developing Global Scientists and Engineers program provides highest quality international research experiences for U.S. students. Whereas the International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) component of the program supports groups of U.S. undergraduate or graduate students conducting research abroad in collaboration with foreign investigators, the Doctoral Dissertation Enhancement Projects (DDEP) component supports the dissertation research abroad of one doctoral student in collaboration with a foreign investigator.In addition to the activities described in this solicitation, the Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) supports other targeted international research and education experiences for early-career scientists and engineers via the Research Experience for Undergraduates program, the East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students, the Pan-American Advanced Studies Institutes (for advanced graduate students and post-doctoral fellows), and the International Research Fellowship Program (for post-doctoral fellows or new faculty).
