ISC Travel Grant brings Young HPC Leaders to Conference from Nepal and Botswana

Today ISC 2018 announced the winners of the ISC High Performance Travel Grant Program. Designed to enable university students and young researchers to attend the conference in Germany, the ISC Travel Grant was introduced this year to help university students and young researchers who are interested in acquiring high performance computing knowledge and skills, but lack the necessary resources to obtain them. “Raksha Roy, a researcher from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Nepal, and Badisa Mosesane an undergraduate student at the University of Botswana, have been selected as the ISC Travel Grant recipients this year. They have been chosen out of 16 regional and international applications. Both Ms. Roy, 28, and Mr. Mosesane, 26, will each be awarded a grant of 1500 euros to attend the conference.”
