NSF East Asia & Pacific Summer Institute

An EAPSI award provides U.S. graduate students in science, engineering, and education: 1) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, 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. It is expected that EAPSI awards will help students initiate professional relationships to enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.

Applicants must:

  1. be U.S. citizens or permanent residents;
  2. be enrolled in a research-oriented Master’s or Ph.D. degree program, and, if enrolled in a joint Bachelor/Master’s program, have graduated from the undergraduate degree portion of the program;
  3. be enrolled at a U.S. institution located in the United States; and
  4. propose a research project in a field of science, engineering, or science education supported by the National Science Foundation
