EAPSI Scholarships for US Graduate Students in Science and Engineering

The US National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1) first-hand research experience in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan; 2) an introduction to the science and science policy infrastructure of the respective location; and 3) orientation to the society, culture and language. The primary goals of EAPSI are to introduce students to East Asia and Pacific science and engineering in the context of a research setting, and to help students initiate scientific relationships that will better enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts. The institutes last approximately eight weeks from June to August.

Awardees will receive a $5,000 stipend, an allowance of up to $2,500 for international travel, and will be supported to attend a pre-departure orientation in the Washington, D.C. area. Foreign co-sponsoring organizations will provide additional support to cover EAPSI students’ living expenses abroad during the period of the summer institutes, and will provide an orientation to the science environment and culture(s) of each location. Application deadline: December 12, 2007 for summer 2008.
