NSF’s OIIA/ISE announces opportunity for U.S. graduate students to participate in research experiences in East Asian countries 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 application deadline for summer 2014 is November 25, 2013.

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.
