XSEDE EMPOWER Coordinator, Blue Waters Student Internship Program Coordinator
Durham, North Carolina
I am one of the coordinators of the XSEDE EMPOWER Program, an XSEDE-wide effort to expand the community by recruiting and enabling a diverse group of students who have the skills - or are interested in acquiring the skills - to participate in the actual work of XSEDE. We invite the whole XSEDE community - staff, researchers, and educators - to recruit and mentor undergraduate students to engage in a variety of XSEDE activities, such as computational and/or data analytics research and education in all fields of study, networking, system maintenance and support, and visualization. The program provides a stipend to students and resources for the training of those students who work on XSEDE projects for one semester, one quarter, one summer, or longer. More information about the program is available here: http://computationalscience.org/xsede-empower

I am also one of the coordinators of the Blue Waters Student Internship Program, an opportunity for undergraduate students across the U.S. to engage in year-long research projects involving the application of high-performance computing to problems in the sciences, engineering, and/or mathematics. Students begin their internships in late May / early June with a two-week intensive petascale institute at NCSA; they then return to their home institutions to work with a project mentor throughout the coming year. Students use the Blue Waters system through education allocations; we provide them a $5000 stipend; and we select a few to attend the Blue Waters Symposium each year to present posters about their project work.
