Student Opportunities

  • George Michael Memorial HPC Ph.D. Fellowship

    In memory of George Michael, one of the founding fathers of the SC Conference series, this award honors exceptional Ph.D. students throughout the world whose focus areas are on high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis. ACM, the IEEE Computer Society, and the SC Conference sponsor this award. Fellowship recipients will be selected based on their overall potential for research excellence, the degree to which their technical interests align with those of the HPC community, their academic progress to date (as evidenced by publications and endorsements from their faculty advisor and department head as well as a plan of study to enhance HPC-related skills) and demonstration of their anticipated use of HPC resources.

  • Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

    The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields of study that use high performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.
    The program fosters a community of bright, energetic and committed Ph.D. students, alumni, DOE laboratory staff and other scientists who share a common desire to impact the nation while advancing their science. Fellowship students represent diverse scientific and engineering disciplines but the common thread is their use of mathematical and computing techniques for their research.

  • XSEDE Scholars Program

    The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment(XSEDE) project supports the XSEDE Scholars Program, a year-long experience that provides underrepresented and minority undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to learn more about advanced computational tools and digital resources, network with the XSEDE professional community, travel to the annual supercomputing conference, and participate in online community sessions.

  • East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI) program

    The National Science Foundation(NSF) East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI) is a flagship international fellowship program for developing the next generation of globally engaged U.S. scientists and engineers knowledgeable about the Asian and Pacific regions. The Summer Institutes are hosted by foreign counterparts committed to increasing opportunities for young U.S. researchers.
    Fellows participate in eight-week research experiences overseas from June to August. The program provides a summer stipend, round-trip airfare to the host location, living expenses abroad, and an introduction to the society, culture, language, and research environment of the host location.

  • Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Sites program

    NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
