September 18, 2019 — A class of 26 future leaders in high-performance computing (HPC) 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 481 students since it was launched in 1991. They have matriculated at more than 65 universities. Only about 6 percent of applicants were chosen for the fellowship this year.
Nearly a quarter of all former fellows work or have worked in a DOE lab setting. 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 those pursuing an advanced degree in applied mathematics, statistics or computer science with research interests that help use emerging high-performance systems more effectively. Their research focuses on HPC as a broad enabling technology and not on a particular science or engineering application.
Members of the fellowship’s latest incoming class, their institutions and fields, are:
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 Department of Energy laboratories or sites across the country.
Additional details for each fellow are available via the program’s online fellow directory (https://www.krellinst.org/csgf/fellows/listing-by-program-year). For further information, contact the Krell Institute, DOE CSGF program manager, at https://www.krellinst.org/csgf/contact-us.
