National Science Foundation International Science & Engineering

The National Science Foundation International Science & Engineering section would like to make you aware of an opportunity for U.S. graduate students to participate in research experiences in summer 2014 through the East Asia & Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) program. EAPSI supports 200-205 graduate students each year to do research in the lab of their choice in any of seven locations: Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan.  Each institute has a fixed start and end date, and includes a pre-departure orientation near NSF and an in-country language and culture orientation. An EAPSI award includes a $5,000 stipend and round trip air ticket provided by NSF, and a living allowance provided by NSF’s counterpart funding agency in the host location. The program is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents enrolled in research-oriented graduate programs in NSF-funded STEM fields. The U.S. graduate student is the PI on an EAPSI proposal. The application deadline is November 25, 2013. The EAPSI program announcement 13-593 and related information are available at http://www.nsf.gov/eapsi
 
EAPSI is an excellent opportunity for U.S. graduate students to advance their research in collaboration with high-caliber scientists and engineers in East Asia and to build professional networks in a scientifically important region of the world. The program is entirely funded by ISE and our international partners: there is no cost to NSF directorates or to your PIs. It’s an excellent opportunity to leverage our resources to advance international research and education opportunities for your community. We invite you to share this mail or the link with PIs, graduate students, and others in your community who may benefit from the EAPSI opportunity.
 
Informational Webinars will be conducted on Friday, September 27, 2013, at 3:00 pm ET and on Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 1:00 pm ET.  Please visit www.nsf.gov/eapsi for information on how to join the Webinars. Passcode is EAPSI2014.
