National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes

Australia

The program is co-sponsored in Australia by The Australian Academy of Science (AAS). The Academy coordinates the orientation, and helps participants move to host institutions.  Its involvement in the EAPSI program is possible, thanks to the financial support of the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research.

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.

See How to Locate Potential Host Institutions for more information on how to locate a host institution/researcher in Australia.
