East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes program for US graduate students


Applications for the 2017 cycle of this program have closed. 


The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) program provides US graduate students in science and engineering first-hand experience to conduct research in Australian laboratories and to initiate personal relationships with their Australian counterparts. The program also introduces the students to Australian science policy infrastructure and orientation to the culture. The program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training and the US National Science Foundation (NSF).

An orientation program in Canberra will mark the beginning of the students’ stay in Australia. The orientation will include scientific lectures and site visits to cultural institutions and the opportunity to meet members of the Academy's Executive Committee and Council.

The host institutions provide students with office accommodation, access to laboratory, library and computing facilities, access to major equipment and special apparatus, as well as technical assistance and the time and expertise of the host researcher.

Students are required to provide a report, 30 days after the conclusion of the program. Summaries of the reports from previous EAPSI participants are available under past programs.


For more information on the EAPSI Summer Program, including application forms and deadlines, please visit the EAPSI website.
