I thought I'd start a thread on interesting research and funding opportunities. This summer I hope to study (fully funded!) at Tsinghua University in Beijing under the NSF's East Asia and Pacific Summer Internship
. It's a summer fellowship that's meant to foster collaboration between US grad students/post docs and researchers in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Australia/New Zealand. I got to design my own project proposal, which was a kick - and now I'm in the NSF's database as a principal investigator, woot?
The deadline for this summer's already past, but it's something that those of you who are interested in international travel can keep in mind for next year. Supposedly about 400 people apply for roughly 250 positions each year.
Anyone else have links to cool programs?
