Message 1: NSF East Asia Pacific Summer Institutes
Date: 15-Sep-2006
From: Joan Maling <eapinfonsf.gov>
Subject: NSF East Asia Pacific Summer Institutes


Dear colleagues,

The NSF East Asia Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) Program provides
U.S. graduate students in science and engineering 1) first-hand research
experience in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand 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
laboratory, and to initiate personal relationships that will better
enable them to collaborate with foreign counterparts in the future. The
institutes last approximately eight weeks from June to August. The
National Institutes of Health (NIH) co-sponsor the Summer Institute in
Japan.

EAPSI changes for 2007
* New Zealand is added as an East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes
(EAPSI) location.
* The Award amount has been amended to reflect the increase in the
stipend amount to $4,000.
* Proposal preparation instructions have been clarified.
* Potential host institutions are expanded to include Beijing,
Shanghai, Kunming and Xian.
