Proposal submission deadline for the NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) Program for U.S. Graduate Students in Science and Engineering for Summer 2013 has been extended till Thursday, December 6, 2012.
EAPSI Program provides U.S. graduate students in science and engineering (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) with an opportunity to spend 8 weeks (10 weeks for Japan) during the summer conducting research at one of the seven host locations in East Asia and Pacific: Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan.
NSF provides EAPSI Fellows with a $5,000 stipend and roundtrip airplane ticket to the host location. Our foreign counterparts provide in-country living expenses and accommodations (arrangements vary by host location).
Please note that only one letter of recommendation (from current advisor) is required.
We look forward to receiving applications from U.S. graduate students.
