April 1, 2014 @ 12:00 am
The XSEDE Scholars Program (XSP) is now accepting applications for its selective year-long program for U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the computing sciences to learn more about high performance computing and XSEDE resources. The focus is on the following underrepresented groups: African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, Native Americans, and women. As a part of the XSP, students will:
- Receive a travel grant to attend XSEDE 14 in Atlanta, Georgia on July 13 – 18, 2014 ( https://conferences.xsede.org/
- Meet other Scholars in special session at XSEDE14 and via an online community throughout the year.
- Join a select community of over 100 former XSEDE Scholars.
- Network with other academicians and leaders in the XSEDE research community.
- Learn about research, internships, fellowships, and career opportunities.
- Participate in at least six online technical training and mentoring webinars with other Scholars for free.
Application Deadline: April 1, 2014; Notification of Award: April 15, 2014 APPLY HERE: http://bit.ly/1drMGeI Eligibility Requirements: This program is open to graduates and undergraduates with solid academic backgrounds. Students majoring in computational science (computer science, applied mathematics, and high performance computing applications) and all STEM degrees who seek training and exposure to high performance computing and XSEDE resources are sought. Underrepresented minority students and women who are interested in computational sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. You must be a U.S. citizens or permanent resident currently attending a U.S. institutions to be eligible for this program. You do not need to be a computer science major to apply. If you are a STEM major and use mathematics/computational science in your studies and research, you are eligible. We will also consider non-STEM majors who use mathematics/computational science in their studies and research on a case-by-case basis. To learn more, please visit: www.xsede.org/xsede-scholars-
