For Undergraduates

At the Nanovic Institute, we help to prepare students for study abroad. We help them plan and conduct focused, original research. We support their high-quality internships and service opportunities and make it possible for them to immerse themselves in local languages, to live among Europeans, to see the world from a different perspective.

After their experiences in Europe, our students return to Notre Dame transformed with a new sense of confidence, awareness, and maturity that enables them to succeed.

  • Please familiarize yourself with our grant requirements before starting the application process. Note that these grants are not intended to fund study abroad programs.


Research Involving Human Subjects – Institutional Review Board

Undergraduate students engaged in human subjects research (i.e., interaction with a living person or private information from existing data, documents, records or diagnostic specimens) must have their projects approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and pass the internet based training modules on the protection of human subjects. Review deadlines, submission process, and information about IRB education and training may be found on the Notre Dame Research website.

Questions concerning whether your research qualifies as human subject research should be directed to Notre Dame Research at 631-1461 or research@nd.edu.
