The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1.) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan; 2.) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and 3.) an 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.
All institutes, except Japan, last approximately eight weeks from June to August. Japan lasts approximately ten weeks from June to August. Full Proposal Deadline Date: November 14, 2012 (Second Wednesday in November, annually thereafter).
