PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Summer Institute in Japan


Background

Established in 1990, the Summer Institute is sponsored in Japan by concerned government agencies and organizations and implemented by the Science and Technology Agency of Japan (STA) and the Japan Science and Technology Corporation (JST). The Summer Institute supports up to sixty students each year. Host institutions for the program include government, university, and corporate laboratories in Tokyo and Tsukuba Science City (located approximately 60 km northeast of Tokyo); host laboratories in other areas may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Key Elements

Support

NSF will provide airline tickets to and from Japan and an allowance of $2,500 to each participant. This allowance is meant to compensate in part for loss of summer employment. The Japanese government will provide accommodations as well as allowances for food and professional travel within Japan. In Japan, the Japan International Science and Technology Exchange Center (JISTEC) will provide logistical support for the Summer Institute. Participants are responsible for providing their own insurance and for any additional expenditures. Due to the intensive nature of the program, dependents are not permitted to accompany participants during the eight-week program.


The Monbusho Summer Program in Japan


Background

Established in 1995 by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture (Monbusho) as the "Research Experience Fellowships for Young Foreign Researchers," the Monbusho Summer Program accepts up to 50 American graduate students plus participants from France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The Monbusho Summer Program shares the same primary objectives as the Summer Institute, but does not offer language training except during the first week of orientation. The Monbusho Program also places participants in different research settings. Under the Monbusho Summer Program, participants can work in national universities or inter-university research institutes throughout Japan, whereas in the Summer Institute participants are placed primarily in government or corporate laboratories in the Tokyo and Tsukuba areas.

Key Elements

Support

NSF will provide an allowance of $2,500 to each participant. This allowance is meant to compensate in part for loss of summer employment. The Japanese government will provide airline tickets and allowances for accommodations, food and professional travel within Japan. In Japan, the Graduate University of Advanced Studies (Soken-dai) will provide logistical support for the Monbusho Summer Program. Participants are responsible for providing their own insurance and for any additional expenditures. Due to the intensive nature of the program, dependents are not permitted to accompany participants during the eight-week program.


The Summer Institute in Korea

Background

Started in 1995, the Summer Institute in Korea is sponsored in Korea by the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF). Support for up to 20 U.S. graduate students is provided. KOSEF has identified more than 50 potential host institutions, including KOSEF-supported Science Research Centers and Engineering Research Centers, government research institutes, private research institutes, and other institutions whose scientists and engineers are eligible to participate in cooperative activities supported by KOSEF. Participants in the Summer Institute will be assigned to host laboratories mainly in Seoul, Daeduk Science Town (a suburb of Taejon), or Pohang; host laboratories in other areas may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Key Elements

Support

NSF will provide airline tickets to and from Korea and an allowance of $2,500 for each participant. This allowance is meant to compensate in part for loss of summer employment. KOSEF will provide allowances for accommodations, food and professional travel within Korea. In Korea, KOSEF also will provide logistical support. Participants are responsible for providing their own insurance and for covering any additional costs. Due to the intensive nature of the program, dependents are not permitted to accompany participants during the eight-week program.


The Summer Institute in Taiwan

Background

Beginning in 2000, the Summer Institute in Taiwan operates in line with the U.S.-Taiwan Relation Act (PL 96-8) and through cooperation between NSF and the Taiwan National Science Council, which provides logistical support in Taiwan. The Summer Institute in Taiwan shares the same primary objectives as the other Summer Programs components, namely an introduction to Taiwan science and engineering in the context of a research laboratory and the initiation of personal relationships which will lead to future collaborations. The program will support up to 10 U.S. graduate students. Host institutions include a selection of national laboratories, central S&T units and research institutes, universities and private sector research centers in Taipei and Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park (approximately 100 km south of Taipei); host laboratories in other areas may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Key Elements

Support

NSF will provide airline tickets to and from Taiwan and an allowance of $2,500 for each participant. This allowance is meant to compensate in part for loss of summer employment. The Taiwan National Science Council will provide accommodations and allowances for food and professional travel within Taiwan. The Tsing Hua University in Taiwan will provide culture and language orientation during the first week; for the remaining seven weeks, the individual research and other activities of participants will be managed by their respective host institutes. Participants are responsible for providing their own insurance and for any additional expenditures. Due to the intensive nature of the program, dependents are not permitted to accompany participants during the eight-week program.


ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for these programs, as of December 1 of the application year, applicants must be:


APPLICATION PREPARATION & SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Application materials should be submitted directly to the NSF East Asia and Pacific Program by the applicant; endorsement by an institution is not required. Proposals are accepted once a year, beginning in November, and must be postmarked by December 1. Applicants are responsible for verifying with the NSF East Asia and Pacific Program that their application file is complete.

A complete summer program application consists of the following documents, assembled in sequence:

1. Application Form (Part 1, pages 1-3) - The same forms are used for the Summer Institute in Japan, the Monbusho Summer Program, the Summer Institute in Korea, and the Summer Institute in Taiwan. Given that there are three countries involved and the significant differences among the Summer Institutes and the Monbusho Summer Program (the language component in particular), it is extremely important that prospective applicants carefully consider the program to which they apply. Please indicate by a check the appropriate program on page 1 of the application form. Applicants wishing to be considered for more than one program should indicate their preferences numerically on the application form. Program materials will be distributed by regular mail and electronic mail to the addresses you indicate; please enter this information carefully and correctly. Your current home mailing address cannot be your institutional address.

2. List of Potential Host Institutions (Part 2) - Summer Institute in Japan applicants should use Appendices I and II as a guide and should list at least one of the non-university institutions listed in Appendix I. (Other institutions not listed in Appendices I and II, exclusive of universities, may be considered for the Summer Institute in Japan on a case-by-case basis.) Monbusho Summer Program applicants should use Appendix III. (No other institutions can be considered for the Monbusho Summer Program.) Summer Institute in Korea applicants should use Appendix IV. Summer Institute in Taiwan applicants should use Appendix V. (Other institutions may be considered for the Summer Institute in Korea and the Summer Institute in Taiwan on a case-by-case basis).

Applicants should list potential host institutions in priority order and identify the specific research divisions of the programs that are of particular interest. If known, give the names and complete contact information of the researchers that you would like to be considered as your potential host. Indicate whether you have already established contact with each researcher and/or institution, and provide copies of any communication from the scientist offering to host you for the program. Significant updates regarding host contacts should be provided immediately to the NSF East Asia and Pacific Program. Although the information you provide on potential host institutions and researchers will definitely strengthen your application and will assist in matching you with an appropriate host, assignment to a specific laboratory cannot be guaranteed. Matching of all students is done with consideration given to: 1) an individualís stated preferences regarding host institution; 2) the mix of host laboratories from corporate, government, and university sectors, and; 3) the number of students located in different geographical regions. Formal requests for laboratories to serve as hosts are made through the appropriate ministries and agencies. Requests may be declined for a number of reasons, and when this happens, we seek to arrange placement at a different laboratory. For this reason, you are advised to list at least three potential host institutions. On the other hand, you are cautioned that, should placement occur at any of the institutions you list, you will be expected to accept placement unless there are truly exceptional circumstances.

3. Statement of Purpose (Part 3) - Explain your unique qualifications for participation in the Summer Programs and list the benefits the program will provide to your professional development. May not exceed one page.

4. Description of Current Research (Part 4) - Provide a summary of your current research projects and interests. Please note that this information will be the basis for assignment to an appropriate host laboratory and will be read by potential host scientists in order to determine if there are common research interests. It is important to write the summary for a technical audience and to identify in the process both a general field of study and any specific research interests, especially those relevant to the Japanese, Korean or Taiwan research environment. May not exceed one page.

5. Biographical Sketch - Provide professional and academic essentials, including a list of publications, including those accepted for publication. May not exceed two pages.

6. Undergraduate and Graduate Transcripts - Unofficial copies are acceptable. If enrollment in a master's or Ph.D. program is not explicitly indicated on the latest transcript, attach a signed statement from the registrar's office attesting to current status. Remember that for masterís degree students at least one full academic year of study (two semesters or three quarters) must have been completed at the close of the calendar year of program application.

Ten (10) copies of the complete application are required. In addition, the following must also be provided:

1) A single copy of Information About Principal Investigators/Project Directors, NSF Form 1225 (Appendix VI, and on the World Wide Web at: http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/getpub?form1225). The information requested refers only to you, the student applicant.

2) Recommendation Forms (Part 5): One from applicant's research supervisor and one from a faculty member or other individual qualified to comment on the applicant's abilities and potential as a scientific researcher. Make copies of the recommendation form to give to each referee. The research supervisorís recommendation form should include the initialed endorsement of the applicant's participation in the Summer Programs. The letters must be mailed by the referees directly to the East Asia and Pacific Program at the address below.

WHY THIS INFORMATION IS BEING REQUESTED:

The Federal Government has a continuing commitment to monitor the operation of its review and award processes to identify and address any inequities based on gender, race, ethnicity, or didisability of its proposed Pis/PDs. To gahter information needed for this important task, the proposer should submit a single copy of this form for each identified PI/PD with each proposal. Submission of the requested information is voluntary and is not a precondition of award. However, information not submitted will seriously undermine the statistical validity, and therefore the usefulness, of information received from others. Any individual not wishing to submit some or all the information should check the box provided for this purpose. (The exceptions are PI/PD name and the information about prior Federal support, the last question above.)

Collection of this information is authorised by the NSF Act of 1950, as ammended, 42 U.S.C. 1861, et seq. Demographic data allows NSF to gauge whether our programs and other opportunities in science and technology are fairly reaching and benefiting everyone regardless of demographic category; to ensure that those in under-represented groups have the same knowledge of and access to programs and other research and educational opportunities; and to assess involvement of international investigators in work supported by NSF. The information may be disclosed to government contractors, experts, volunteers and researchers to complete assigned work; and to select potential candidates to serve as peer reviewers or advisory committee members. See Systems of Records, NSF-50, "Principal Investigator/Proposal File and Associated Records," 63 Federal Register 267 (January 5, 1998), and NSF-51, "Reviewer/Proposal File and Associated Records," 63 Federal 268 (January 5, 1998).
