Undergraduate Education

The Blue Waters project, in collaboration with the National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) and national high-performance computing programs, supports the Undergraduate Petascale Education Program, which promotes understanding and interest in petascale computing and its applications among undergraduate students and faculty through workshopsinternships, and curricular materials.

Blue Waters Internships

As part of the Blue Waters efforts to motivate and train the next generation of supercomputing researchers, the program is sponsoring 20 undergraduate research interns each year. The goal is to engage undergraduate students in petascale computing research and development projects. Each intern receives a stipend of  $5,000 and participates in a two-week intensive high-performance computing workshop. Some students also will receive travel support to attend the annual Blue Waters Symposium. For complete details see: https://bluewaters.ncsa.illinois.edu/internships. NOTE: 2015 internship applications are due by March 20
