UPCOMING DEADLINES FOR U.S. INSTITUTIONS TO SUBMIT PROPOSALS FOR CERTAIN INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE ACTIVITIES
As we have reported from time to time, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) supports activities aimed at promoting new partnerships between U.S. investigators and their colleagues in other countries, or new cooperative projects between established collaborators. Such activities may be in any field of science and engineering research and education supported by NSF. Any proposal for support of most of these activities must be submitted by a U.S. institution, organization, or professional society. The following activities are supported by the recently re-organized Office of International Science and Engineering (INT):
1. Cooperative research
2. Joint workshops and seminars
4. Summer Research Experiences for Students
5. Dissertation enhancement projects
6. Planning visits
7. The International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP)
8. East Asia Summer Institutes (EASI) in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China
9. Pan American Advanced Studies Institutes (PASI)
As we have also reported from time to time, INT has deadlines for proposal submission to some of these programs. For other programs, proposals may be submitted any time during the year. Following are applicable deadlines for the remainder of the current year (2003) for the specific programs indicated.
