"The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan and an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location.  Also, students are orientated 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. All institutes, except Japan, last approximately eight weeks from June to August. Japan lasts approximately ten weeks from June to August. The full proposal deadline date is November 9, 2011."
