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

"We combine the two, and we work closely with our partners in Japan to ensure our students have both a great laboratory experience and a life-changing cultural experience."

Rice junior Paul Thompson, a 2007 NanoJapan participant at Osaka University, said, "Not only have I made friends and connections abroad, but Ive also been able to continue research in a similar vein here at Rice under the supervision of a post-doc in Professor Naomi Halas' laboratory. I am also continuing to study Japanese, although classes dont really match the opportunity that living in Japan for 11 weeks provided."

NanoJapan also had a significant impact on other participants. For example, three past Rice participants, Jennifer Gillenwater, Tyler Barth and Alec Walker, have gone on to complete semester exchange programs at the National University of Singapore and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Barth was also awarded the IIE Freeman-Asia Scholarship to study Mandarin language in Taiwan during the summer of 2007. Other program participants have also returned to Japan. For example, Yu-Heng (Jaret) Lee participated in the last year of the JETRO Japan International Internship program in the summer of 2007, and Tianhe Yang returned in the summer of 2007 to give a research poster presentation at an optics workshop. In addition, three NanoJapan alumni will participate later this year in the INNOVATE 2008 globalization and technology conference in Vietnam and Singapore.

"Programs like NanoJapan fill a critical void in international education offerings available to U.S. technical students," said Roger Blais, provost and vice president of academic affairs at the University of Tulsa.
