XSEDE Scholars Program

The XSEDE Scholars Program extended skills to underrepresented students in the areas of supercomputers, data collections, new tools, digital services and increased productivity for thousands of scientists around the world.

The XSEDE Scholars Program (XSP) served U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the area of computational science (2011-2017). Participants learned about high performance computing and XSEDE resources, networked with cutting-edge researchers and professional leaders, and were part of a cohort that established a community of academic leaders.
