East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students: NSF and selected foreign counterpart science and technology agencies sponsor international research institutes for US graduate students in seven East Asia and Pacific locations at times set by the counterpart agencies between June and August each year. These 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 a 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 a pre-departure orientation, a summer stipend, and travel expenses to the research site. EAPSI partner agencies pay in-country living expenses during the Summer Institutes.

This requires that, during the application process, each student must register as an institution and serves as his or her own Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR). Similarly, awards are made to the individuals. *PI Limit: As of the deadline date for the application, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents;be enrolled in a research-oriented Master's or Ph.D. degree program, and, ifenrolled in a joint Bachelor/Master's program, have graduated fromthe undergraduate degree portion of the program;be enrolled at a U.S. institution locatedin the United States; andpropose a research project in fields of science, engineering,and science education supported by the National Science Foundation (see Section II below for fields of study eligible for NSF support). Applications submitted by persons who do not meetall of the above criteria will not be entered into the competition and will be returned without review. Applicants are encouraged to consult with and have the support of their academic advisors prior to applying. Previous awardees may apply, but only to a different host location from their previous award. Priority will be given to new applicants to the program. Students who are matriculated at the time of application and subsequently graduate may still receive an award and participate in the program.
