Based on a proposal from the SC conference Steering Committee, the ACM and IEEE Computer Society established a fellowship fund for worthy students who are studying topics in High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. Funded by the surplus of SC|05, this fellowship is sufficiently endowed to fund at least $20,000 per year.
The Program honors exceptional Ph.D. students throughout the world with the focus areas of High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. Fellowships are awarded a certificate and a stipend of at least $5,000 (US) for one academic year. The SC Steering Committee and other conference volunteers are willing to facilitate, where possible, internships for Fellows at HPC research or development sites. Interns are paid by their host site and will be subject to the prevailing terms and conditions of the internship program at that site. ACM/IEEE-CS HPC Ph.D. Fellowships are awarded annually but previous awardees may compete annually to be renewed for up to two additional years (three total), based on the Award Recipient’s continued exceptional academic standing, progress, achievement, and sustained interaction with the HPC technical community.
Students must be nominated by a full time faculty member at a PhD granting, accredited institution. They must be enrolled in a full-time Ph. D program at an accredited college or university, and they should have completed at least one year of study in their doctoral program at the time of their nomination.
