Blue Waters Student Internship Program
As part of the Blue Waters efforts to motivate and train the next generation of supercomputing researchers, the program is sponsoring about 20 undergraduate research interns each year. The goal is to engage undergraduate students in petascale computing research and development projects. The program provides each student a stipend totaling $5,000, a two-week intensive Petascale Institute, and an education allocation on the Blue Waters system. Select students will travel to the Blue Waters Symposium. This program includes support for undergraduate internship activities at any accredited degree granting institution in the United States. The internships awarded through this program may be for students working with a faculty mentor on their home campus, or at another campus. Interested faculty can work with a particular student that they identify, or may select a qualified student with Blue Waters support through our program.
Students and faculty who are members of groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM are strongly encouraged to participate in the program.
The interns that have been supported can be viewed via the links on the left side of this page.
