ACM SIGHPC and Intel are excited to announce a new international program of graduate fellowships, beginning in 2016. The goal is to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, including women as well as students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field. The program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.
Submissions open: March 15
Submissions close: April 30
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
