A class of 26 future high-performance computing (HPC) leaders is enrolled at U.S. universities this fall with support from the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF).
Including the new fellows, the program has sponsored more than 500 students at more than 65 universities since it was launched in 1991. Only about 5 percent of applicants were chosen for the fellowship this year.
Fellows receive a yearly stipend; full payment of university tuition and required fees (during the appointment period); and an annual academic allowance. The fellowship, renewable for up to four years, also includes a three-month research practicum at one of 21 DOE sites.
Nearly a quarter of all former fellows work or have worked at a DOE facility. Others pursue careers in academia, industry or government, where they introduce and advocate for computational science as a tool for discovery.
The DOE CSGF includes a track for
