“Blue Waters Student Internship Program Now Accepting Applicants
Applications due Fri March 21 2014
Durham, NC — November 20, 2013
Shodor and NCSA announced this week at Supercomputing Conference
2013 the Blue Waters Student Internship Program.
Blue Waters Student Internship Program is actively seeking faculty
and students to participate in year-long student internship
Students in the program will gain experiences involving the
application of high-performance computing to problems in science,
mathematics or engineering.
The program provides a student stipend for undergraduate
participants totaling $5000, and a two-week intensive Petascale
Institute in 2014 along with travel to the Blue Waters Symposium
2015 for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Blue Waters, supported by NSF and the University of Illinois, is
one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers and the fastest on
a university campus.
Up to 1 percent of the computing capacity of Blue Waters is
available for educational efforts aimed at preparing the next
generation of students and teachers and an educated workforce.
The goal of the Blue Waters Student Internship Program and of the
education allocation is to provide unique learning experiences for
undergraduate and graduate students across a wide array of
traditional and emerging disciplines.
In collaboration with Blue Waters, Shodor and the National
Computational Science Institute will provide support and content
for the internship program and Petascale Institute.
