Fellowships! East Asia/Pacific Summer (NSF), National Physical Sciences Consortium

Dear Graduate Students,
Please note that some of our alumni have taken advantage of these fellowships in the past and have found them to be extremely rewarding! We list two here:
1) The East Asia Pacific Summer Institute (Note that Dr. Alexis Harryman, UMBC Biology, participated in this fellowship. She loved it and was a spokeperson for the seminar a few years ago. Alex participated in the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program, and in PROMISE. )
2) The National Physical Science Consortium.  (Note that we’ve had NPSC scholars in the past. This deadline in Nov. 30.)
The EAPSI Program provides U.S. graduate students in science and engineering (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) with an opportunity to spend 8 weeks (10 weeks for Japan) during the summer conducting research at one of the seven host locations in East Asia and Pacific: Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan.
NSF provides EAPSI Fellows with a $5,000 stipend and roundtrip airplane ticket to the host location. Our foreign counterparts provide in-country living expenses and accommodations (arrangements vary by host location).
For more information, please read the Program Solicitation, host location-specific Handbooks, and How to Apply Guide available at www.nsf.gov/eapsi.  Please note that only one letter of recommendation (from current advisor) is required.  Please forward this NSF research opportunity to your faculty, graduate students, and anyone interested: www.nsf.gov/eapsi.  Proposal submission deadline for Summer 2013 has been extended till Thursday, December 6, 2012.
The Traditional NPSC Program provides a two-phase, six-year fellowship, and The Dissertation Support Program provides support while the graduate student conducts dissertation research.  The deadline in Nov. 30, 2012. Please apply: http://www.npsc.org.
Please pay attention to these important opportunities! Congratulations to all of you who have submitted your NSF GRFP, GEM, Ford Foundation, and NIH applications! We’re so proud of you for working hard. Several members of our community have won these awards in the past. We also thank PROMISE Alums Dr. Frances Carter-Johnson and Dr. Patti Ordóñez Rozo for working with so many of you over the past several months, both during their fellowship seminar, and on their own time. Thanks also to the Graduate School at College Park for their fellowships seminar. Good luck everyone!
