The National Science Foundation International Science & Engineering section would like to make you aware of an opportunity for U.S. graduate students to participate in research experiences in summer 2014 through the East Asia & Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) program. EAPSI supports 200-205 graduate students each year to do research in the lab of their choice in any of seven locations: Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan.
I am pleased to announce that the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a fully-funded scholarship opportunity, is currently accepting applications from your students. Please make this information available to your students, and encourage them to apply in advance of the December 1 deadline:
Thanks so much for sharing widely the Critical Language Scholarship information I shared last week. Another similar and yet completely different program is also available for students planning to study critical languages abroad during 2014-15. Again, please share widely with students in all fields.
