XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. The XSEDE Scholars Program (XSP) is a selective year-long program for U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the computing sciences who receive opportunities to learn more about high performance computing and XSEDE resources. The focus is on the following underrepresented groups: African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Native Americans, and women.

XSEDE Scholars will:
-- receive a stipend of $5000 to work on an HPC educational/research internship at your institution from May 31, 2016 -- June 1, 2017 with your own advisor OR a Blue Waters Advisor (see available/new internship projects, visit http://computationalscience.org/upep/positions/list and click in Current/New Positions);
