Application deadlines are fast approaching for the Blue Waters Graduate Program and the International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences.
- The Blue Waters Graduate Program lets graduate students from across the country immerse themselves in a year of focused high-performance computing and data-intensive research using the Blue Waters supercomputer to accelerate their research. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Blue Waters Graduate Program is designed to support PhD students engaged in a program of study and research that is directly relevant to the use of Blue Waters as the fellowship provides up to 50,000 node-hours on the Blue Waters system. Applications, including all supporting materials except reference letters, must be submitted by Feb. 3, 2016.
- The International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences is sponsored by XSEDE. This expense-paid program will benefit advanced scholars from Canadian, European, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use HPC to conduct research. Meals and housing will be covered for the selected participants, also travel from outside Europe. Applications from graduate students and postdocs in all science and engineering fields are welcome. Preference will be given to applicants with parallel programming experience, and a research plan that will benefit from the utilization of high performance computing systems. Interested students should apply by February 15, 2016.
