Jan. 28, 2020 — The deadline to submit nominations for the Frontera Computational Science Fellowships is coming to close on February 7, 2020.
The Frontera fellowship program provides a year-long opportunity for talented graduate students to compute on the most powerful academic supercomputer in the world and collaborate with experts at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. Students will have the opportunity to train with the latest tools, topics, and trends in advanced computing. They will also be able to collaborate with highly motivated researchers and graduate students, network with academic and industry professionals, and have access to 50,000 node-hours on Frontera.
Fellows selected will receive a $34,000 stipend, up to $12,000 in tuition allowance throughout the year, and travel support to present research results at a Frontera user community event and/or professional conference.
To be considered for a Frontera Computational Science Fellowship, an applicant must meet the following requirements:
- Be enrolled as a graduate student at the time of application
- Have completed at least one year of their graduate program as of March 2020
- Have a plan of research on their dissertation topic approved by their committee. The research must include a well-defined computational component
- Have at least one full year remaining in their program as of June of the year of award
- Be enrolled in a US institution and studying in the United States or one of its territories
- Be able to spend the summer semester in residence at TACC in the year of award (roughly June and July, but will vary according to your school’s calendar)
Fellows selected for the program will be announced in early March 2020.

In 2018, a new NSF-funded petascale computing system, Frontera, was awarded for deployment at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). Frontera opens up new possibilities in science and engineering by providing computational capabilities that make it possible for investigators to tackle much larger and more complex research challenges across a wide spectrum of scientific domains.
