The Program

Special Note:  There are 6 fully-funded scholarships for Astrophysics students, and 14 additional $1,000 scholarship awards for students in other STEM disciplines which will cover housing, meals, and living expenses for the 6-week program. $500 each will be provided from National Central University and SUNY Oswego, to be paid out by the program faculty leader in Taiwan.

The main goal of this program is to take 20 undergraduate students, from the upstate New York area and outside, to Taiwan for 6 weeks. Students will collaborate on research projects in Physics, Chemistry, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Optics, and Astronomy. For example, astronomy students will be working on cutting edge problems in the extra-galactic distance scale and stellar pulsation. A secondary goal is to give students a significant cultural experience by living and working in a very different environment.
