NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION EAST ASIA AND PACIFIC SUMMER INSTITUTES FOR U.S. GRADUATE STUDENTS - 2011 APPLICATION NOW OPEN
(Link: www.nsfsi.org )
The National Science Foundation (NSF) East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI) is a flagship international fellowship program for developing the next generation of globally  engaged U.S. scientists and engineers knowledgeable about the Asian and Pacific regions. The Summer Institutes are hosted by foreign counterparts committed to increasing opportunities for young U.S. researchers to work in research facilities and with host mentors abroad. Fellows are supported to participate in eight-week research experiences at host laboratories in Australia, China, Japan (10 weeks), Korea, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan from June to August. The program provides a $5,000 summer stipend, round-trip airfare to the host location, living expenses abroad, and an introduction to the society, culture, language, and research environment of the host location.
The 2011 application is now open and will close at 5:00 pm local time on November 10, 2010.  Application instructions are available online at www.nsfsi.org. For further information concerning benefits, eligibility, and tips on applying, applicants are encouraged to visit www.nsf.gov/eapsi or www.nsfsi.org.
NSF recognizes the importance of enabling U.S. researchers and educators to advance their work through international collaborations and the value of ensuring that future generations of U.S. scientists and engineers gain professional experience beyond this nation's borders early in their careers. The program is intended for U.S. graduate students pursuing studies in fields supported by the National Science Foundation. Women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply for the EAPSI. Applicants must be enrolled in a research-oriented master's or PhD program and be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents by the application deadline date. Students in combined bachelor/master degree programs must have matriculated from the undergraduate degree program by the application deadline date.
The first Summer Institutes began in Japan in 1990, and to date over 2,000 U.S. graduate students have participated in the program.
Should you have any questions, please contact the EAPSI Help Desk by email at eapsi@nsfsi.org or by phone at 1-866-501-2922.

Please note the attached announcement for the first Louisiana Industry ¬Academia Collaborative Workshop. Louisiana EPSCoR and the Board of Regents plan to host a series of these workshops with this first one focused on Materials and Energy. The purpose of the workshop is to foster interactions between some of Louisiana’s leading researchers and representatives of Louisiana’s industrial R&D community. We also hope to identify and begin to address policies and mechanisms that may advance fruitful synergisms between academia and industry.

The first workshop is scheduled for October 15, 2010, from noon to 5:30 PM with a reception following in the Marriott in Baton Rouge, LA. The Materials and Energy workshop will feature speakers from industry and academia. Industry representatives will provide insights into their research needs and challenges and university intellectual property officers will describe research innovations that could be particularly relevant to Louisiana's business and industry. University researchers will have posters that describe some of their research programs and related innovations. Lunch will be provided. Seating is limited. Registration required (deadline: October 8, 2010). Please see attached registration form.

This message has been distributed to all faculty.
