Submissions opened today for ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships. Designed to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, the program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.
Each fellowship recipient will receive a stipend prior to the start of their first academic term after August 1. The value of the stipend will be USD $15,000 annually, adjusted depending on the country where the degree will be earned (using the most recent national price level ratio published by the World Bank). Recipients will receive the stipend annually for up to 5 years, as long as they are deemed to be making appropriate progress in the degree program (progress will be evaluated annually by ACM SIGHPC based on a brief report from each recipient).
To qualify for a Computational & Data Science Fellowship, a student must be:
- Either currently enrolled in a graduate program or accepted to begin in one no later than October 15
- Pursuing a graduate degree – Master’s, PhD, or equivalent – in computational or data science (although the formal name of the program may be somewhat different)
- Completed less than half of her/his planned program of study (with preference given to students who are still early in their studies)
- A woman and/or a member of a racial/ethnic group that is currently underrepresented in the computing field in the country where the student will earn the degree
Submissions are due April 30, 2016.
