Call for participation: XSEDE EMPOWER fall 2021

Posted by Aaron Weeden on 06/09/2021 21:38 UTC

Seeking projects, mentors, and undergraduate students!

An XSEDE-wide effort is underway 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 work of XSEDE. The name of this effort is XSEDE EMPOWER (Expert Mentoring Producing Opportunities for Work, Education, and Research). We invite the whole community to recruit and mentor undergraduate students to engage in a variety of activities, such as computational and/or data analytics research and education in all fields of study, networking, system maintenance and support, visualization, and more. The program provides a stipend for students who work on projects for one semester, one quarter, one summer, or longer.

To participate, undergraduate students from any US degree-granting institutions are matched with mentors who have projects that contribute to the work of XSEDE. Participation is strongly encouraged for mentors and students belonging to groups historically underrepresented in HPC. There are three tiers of participation for students depending on existing skill level: Learner, Apprentice, and Intern. Appropriate stipends will support each student.

Application deadline for fall 2021 participation:
June 25, 2021
