Hello Graduates:

Many of you have had Jamie Smith as your faculty instructor for you
courses.  Be sure to congratulate Jamie on her upcoming adventure!

Please join me in congratulating Jamie Smith for her recent scholarship
award from the National Science Foundation. Jamie will be visiting
Australia to participate in TPACK research and will be working under the
direction of an Australian faculty member (Dr. Peter Albion). Below is
information about the program in which Jamie will be participating.



NSF and selected foreign counterpart science and technology agencies
sponsor international research institutes for US graduate students in seven
East Asia and Pacific locations at times set by the counterpart
 agencies between June and August each year.  These Summer Institutes
(EAPSI) operate similarly and the research visits to a particular location
take place at the same time.  Although applicants apply individually to
participate in a Summer Institute, awardees become part of the cohort for
each location. Applicants must propose a location, host scientist, and a
research project that is appropriate for the host site and duration of
the international visit.

An EAPSI award provides U.S. graduate students in science, engineering, and
education:  1) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan,
Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan; 2) an introduction to the science,
science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location;
and 3) an orientation to the society, culture and language.  It is expected
that EAPSI awards will help students initiate professional relationships
to enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.The NSF award
includes participation in a pre-departure orientation, a summer stipend,
and travel expenses to the research site.  EAPSI partner agencies pay
in-country living expenses during the Summer Institutes.

Hope you get a chance to see the outback in Australia!  We will expect

Best wishes,

Dr. Franklin
