New Fellowship to Promote Diversity

The Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM SIGHPC) and Intel are launching a new international program of graduate fellowships in computational and data science. The goal of this new graduate fellowship 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, 2016 for the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships. Interested students can find more information on the fellowships, including a description of the fully online nomination process, at
