Rice wins innovation award for international program
Date:1/28/2008

HOUSTON, Jan. 28, 2008 -- NanoJapan, a unique, Rice University-based program that combines a traditional study abroad experience in Japan with a targeted undergraduate research internship in nanotechnology, has been awarded the Institute of International Education's (IIE) prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education.

The award, created seven years ago to promote and honor the most outstanding initiatives in international higher education, will be presented at a ceremony at the United Nations on March 13 as part of the IIEs annual Best Practices Seminar. Rice and the University of Tulsa, which jointly administer NanoJapan, won the 2008 Heiskell Award in the highly competitive "study abroad" category.

"NanoJapan is a model program that successfully connects engineering and physics undergraduates with the best of international research and the study of Japanese culture and language," said Sallie Keller-McNulty, dean of engineering at Rice. "The program compliments our commitment to internationalize Rice University and the engineering school's aspiration to help lead Rice on its journey to become a truly global university."

NanoJapan was established with a Partnership for International Research and Education grant from the National Science Foundation in 2005. NanoJapan centers upon a 12-week summer session that involves 16 first- and second-year science and engineering students from U.S. universities. The students participate in a three-week language and culture orientation, followed by research internships with leading Japanese nanotechnology laboratories.

"In the past, engineering students were forced to choose between spending their summer in a traditional study-abroad program that was unrelated to their career or staying within the U.S. and completing a research internship," said NanoJapan Principal Investigator Junichiro Kono, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rice.
