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 in 2014. The goal is to engage undergraduate students in petascale computing research and development projects. The program provides each student a stipend totaling $5000, a two-week intensive high-performance computing workshop, and travel to The Blue Waters Symposium 2015. This program includes support for undergraduate internship activities at any accredited degree granting institution in the United States.
