Do you know of students who are studying data science or computing applications, and who are either women or members of an underrepresented group? Please forward this information to them or to their academic advisors – it could be worth $15,000 per year to them.
Submissions are now open for an international program of graduate fellowships in computational and data science. The ACM SIGHPC Computational & Data Science Fellowships were created 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.
Interested faculty advisors and students can find more information on the fellowships, including a description of the online nomination process, at http://www.sighpc.org/fellowship. Nominations close April 30.
