--------------------
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released Solicitation NSF
13-593, entitled, "East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S.
Graduate Students (EAPSI)." The full solicitation can be found by
clicking on the '13-593' link at:
http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5284.

NSF and selected foreign counterpart science and technology agencies
sponsor international research institutes for U.S. graduate students in
seven East Asia and Pacific locations at times set by the counterpart
agencies between June and August each year. The Summer Institutes
(EAPSI) operate similarly and the research visits to a particular
location take place at the same time. Although applicants apply
individually to participate in a Summer Institute, awardees become part
of the cohort for each location. Applicants must propose a location,
host scientist, and research project that is appropriate for the host
site and duration of the international visit.

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.

The NSF award includes participation in the Pre-Departure Orientation,
summer stipend of $5,000, and round-trip airplane ticket to the host
location. EAPSI partner agencies pay in-country living expenses during
the Summer Institutes.

This program provides educational opportunities for graduate students.
Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program
guidelines above.

Full proposal deadline: Monday, 25 November 2013.
