The Blue Waters project offers training and educational sessions in support of the needs of our constituents. We welcome requests for training events, as well as requests for education allocations.

Education Allocations

Blue Waters devotes up to 1.8 million node-hours per year to educational and training activities. These allocations provide a unique learning experience for individuals across the nation by enabling them to use the extraordinary capability of Blue Waters to broaden their computational and data analytics knowledge and expertise. You may apply for an Education Allocation at Education Allocations.
