NSF funding opportunity for graduate students: www.nsf.gov/eapsi
Proposal submission deadline for Summer 2013 has been extended until Thursday, December 6, 2012.
EAPSI Program provides U.S. graduate students in science and engineering (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) with an opportunity to spend 8 weeks (10 weeks for Japan) during the summer conducting research at one of the seven host locations in East Asia and Pacific: Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan.
NSF provides EAPSI Fellows with a $5,000 stipend and roundtrip airplane ticket to the host location. Our foreign counterparts provide in-country living expenses and accommodations (arrangements vary by host location).
For more information, please read the Program Solicitation, host location-specific Handbooks, and How to Apply Guide available at www.nsf.gov/eapsi
Please note that only one letter of recommendation (from current advisor) is required. We look forward to receiving applications from U.S. graduate students. For program related questions you should contact:

I was an NSF EAPSI Fellow to Taiwan in Summer 2011. It was a fantastic experience! At WE11 & WE12 I shared about my time in Asia as a panelist on “Global Opportunities for Graduate Students and Post-Docs.” For more info about my EAPSI project click here.
