ACM SIGHPC and Intel have partnered to create Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a 5-year program to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.
Computational science is interdisciplinary by nature, using algorithms, mathematics and computers to analyze and solve scientific and engineering problems. The DOE-CSGF’s unusual program of study helps nurture this crosscutting foundation.
Graduate and undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in the laboratory’s research and development programs, initiate new areas of research, and establish a base for ongoing collaborations through NREL’s Research Participant Program (RPP).
