NSF opportunity, UCLA grad students to do research at Peking U.
Deadline: November 11, 2014
OIIA/ISE has an opportunity for U.S. graduate students to participate in research experiences in East Asian countries in summer 2015 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 for summer 2015 is November 11, 2014. The EAPSI program announcement 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.
JRI can connect interested students with faculty members at Peking University, Beijing, China.
