XSEDE Scholars Program

— Includes travel grants for the SC11 supercomputing conference in Seattle WA Nov 12 – 16 2011!

Applications due Fri Sep 30 2011


An outstanding student opportunity in the computational sciences!

Supercomputers, data collections, new tools, digital services, increased productivity for thousands of scientists around the world.

Sound exciting? Apply to become an XSEDE Scholar today!

XSEDE is a five-year, $121 million project supported by the National Science Foundation that replaces and expands on the NSF’s TeraGrid project.

More than 10,000 scientists used the TeraGrid to complete thousands of research projects, at no cost to the scientists.

XSEDE continues that same sort of work — only in more detail, generating more knowledge, and improving our world in an even broader range of fields.

You can become involved in XSEDE, too, if selected as a Scholar.

XSEDE Scholars will:

  • Attend the SC11 (supercomputing) conference in Seattle, November 12-16, 2011, through travel grants.
  • Meet other XSEDE Scholars in special sessions at SC11.
  • Participate in at least four activities with other Scholars during the year (e.g., technical training, content-based and mentoring webinars).
  • Network with leaders in the XSEDE research community.
  • Learn about research, internships, and career opportunities.

The XSEDE Scholars Program is directed by Richard Tapia and managed by Alice Fisher, Rice University.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, September 30, 2011

Underrepresented minority undergraduate or graduate students interested in the computational sciences are especially
