This Student and Early Career Information page from NSF summarizes funding opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral student researchers to participate in international research and education activities. Individual postdoctoral and graduate student researchers may apply directly for a number of OISE programs. In addition, postdoctoral and graduate and undergraduate student researchers may be supported as participants in collaborative research projects, joint workshops, and other activities supported by NSF.
The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1.) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, South 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. The primary goals of EAPSI are to introduce students to East Asia and Pacific science and engineering in the context of a research setting, and to help students initiate scientific relationships that will better enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.
