XSEDE Scholars Program 2013-2014

Supercomputers, data collections, new tools, digital services, increased productivity for thousands of scientists around the world...

Sound exciting? These are some of the topics you can learn more about through the XSEDE Scholars Program.  

The XSEDE Scholars Program (XSP) is a program for U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the area of computational sciences.  As a Scholar, you will learn more about high performance computing and XSEDE resources, network with cutting-edge researchers and professional leaders, and belong to a cohort of student peers to establish a community of academic leaders. In particular, the focus is on the following underrepresented groups: African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and women.
