Cool Fellowship Opportunities

Ahoy,

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?

Arr,
noochy.

Thank for posting... I'm a Junior undergrad and was just in Australia last year (study abroad) and could use an excuse to go back to the land down under. They even have a NSW program. Gotta keep that in mind after I figure out grad school.

They don't do a very good job of advertising that... I'd only heard it mentioned once before, and that was by someone who applied and got that fellowship. NSF just started a program with Finland and Norway where you can spend 2-12 months there, but it's only for their graduate research fellows during their fellowship tenure.

I seem to remember getting an email about India and astronomy in the summer at one point too. I wish there were a compiled list of these opportunities.

Woah, swanky! I might apply for that one next year. I've always wanted to travel in India, and it'd be interesting to see what the Indian side of academia looks like. Plus, more common ground from which to relate to the Indian half of my department :)
