The East Asia Summer Institutes (EASI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering first-hand research experience in China, Japan, Korea, or Taiwan, an introduction to the science and science policy infrastructure of the respective location, and orientation to the culture and language. The primary goals of EASI are to introduce students to East Asia science and engineering in the context of a research laboratory, and to initiate personal relationships that will better enable them to collaborate with foreign counterparts in the future. The institutes last approximately eight weeks from June to August and are administered in the United States by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with co-sponsorship by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
