NSF & IIE Announce Central Europe Grants for 2008

The National Science Foundation and the Institute of International Education are pleased to announce the competition opening for the 2008 Central Europe Summer Research Institute (CESRI). CESRI will provide ten awards for U.S. graduate students in the sciences and engineering with a high-quality international summer research experience in Austria, The Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland or Slovakia.

The CESRI program will be 8 weeks in length, with the first week spent as a group in Budapest, Hungary in a specially designed cultural and academic orientation to the region. Participants will spend the remaining 7 weeks working in individually-arranged placements in university labs or other appropriate sites where they can participate in creative research activities under the supervision of European mentors.
