        NSF Program Announcement: SUMMER PROGRAMS IN JAPAN, KOREA, AND
TAIWAN for U.S. Graduate Students in Science and Engineering

        The National Science Foundation (NSF) will support about 100 U.S.
graduate students (U.S. citizen or permanent resident) for research &
cultural experiences in Japan, Korea, or Taiwan during an eight-week summer
program in 2002. The primary goals of the programs are to introduce students
to Japanese, Korean and Taiwan science and engineering in the context of a
research laboratory and to initiate personal relationships that will better
enable them to collaborate with foreign counterparts in the future.

        International airfare, living expenses in the host country, and a
summer stipend of $2,500 will be provided. The application deadline is
December 1, 2001. For eligibility and other information, consult the Program
Announcement (Summer Programs in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan) that can be
obtained from http://www.nsf.gov/sbe/int/eap/gradstud.htm#gradsum and the
NSF Tokyo office web site (http://www.twics.com/~nsftokyo).

        Graduate students seeking support for a specific research project
with an identified collaborator in the East Asia and Pacific region should
also consider NSF's other programs of support, including dissertation
enhancement awards.  See http://www.nsf.gov/sbe/int/eap/gradstud.htm .

        General information about NSF's East Asia and Pacific Program is
available at http://www.nsf.gov/sbe/int/eap/start.htm.

        Questions should be directed to eapinfo at nsf.gov.
