NASA announces a call for graduate fellowship proposals to the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) program for the 2012-2013 academic year. This call for fellowship proposals solicits applications from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of individuals pursuing Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of NESSF is to ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA's scientific goals. Awards resulting from the competitive selection will be made in the form of training grants to the respective universities. The deadline for NEW applications is February 1, 2012, and the deadline for RENEWAL applications is March 15, 2012. The NESSF call for proposals and submission instructions are located at the NESSF 12 solicitation index page at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ - click on "Solicitations" then click on "Open Solicitations" then select the "NESSF 12" announcement. Also refer to "Proposal Submission Instructions" and "Frequently Asked Questions" listed under "Other Documents" on the NESSF 12 solicitation index page. All proposals must be submitted in electronic format only through the NASA NSPIRES system. The advisor has an active role in the submission of the fellowship proposal. To use the NSPIRES system, the advisor, the student, and the university must all register. Extended instructions on how to submit an electronic proposal package are posted on the NESSF 12 solicitation index page listed above. You can register in NSPIRES at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/.

Recently your President/Chancellor may have received a letter announcing an opportunity to nominate graduate students to attend the 2012 Nobel Laureate meeting in Lindau, Germany. This year DOE, NSF, ORAU, and Mars, Inc. will nominate at least 85 graduate students to attend the meeting to be held on July 1- July 6, 2012. This program is operated by DOE’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, which is managed by ORAU. ORAU will sponsor approximately up to 16 students to participate in the meeting along with the student delegation sponsored by DOE, NSF, and Mars, Inc. As an ORAU Sponsoring Institution, you are invited to make two additional nominations directly to ORAU for this program. This provides your institution the opportunity to make a total of 8 nominations for the program – two for each sponsor. As in past years, all nominations and supporting material should be submitted electronically. Additional information and the nomination form may be found at www.orau.org/lindau. Since 1951, Nobel Prize winners and students have met annually in Lindau. Each year an international group of students attend the week-long meeting. The Laureates will lecture on topics of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal discussions with students in the afternoons and evenings. Information on the most recent meeting is available on the web at http://www.orau.org/lindau/past-mtgs/default.shtml. Please note that the eligibility criteria for the ORAU program is slightly different than for the DOE and NSF sponsored program; ORAU will accept nominations for students participating in research programs supported by public and/or private funding sources. To be eligible, students must have completed by June 2012 at least two years study toward doctoral degree in physics, or in a related discipline, but not planning a dissertation/thesis defense before December 31, 2012; be a U.S. citizen; and be currently enrolled at a university as a full-time graduate student. They must be actively participating in research in the field of physics or a related field. We share our federal partners’ interest in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including those underrepresented in physics (for example, women, minorities, or disabled students). All nominations must be submitted at a special website by 4:00 pm on Tuesday, November 15, 2011. Students recommended to the Lindau Meeting Council for the program will be notified by December 31, 2011. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Monnie Champion at 865-576-3306.

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.
