ACM SIGHPC and Intel have partnered to create Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a 5-year program to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world. The 2018 cohort of students will be the third cohort of students.

Nominations open: March 15 
Nominations close: April 30 
Winners announced: by July 31


 

To qualify for a Computational & Data Science Fellowship, a student must be:

  • Either currently enrolled in a graduate program or accepted to begin in one no later than October 15
  • Pursuing a graduate degree – Master’s, PhD, or equivalent – in computational or data science (although the formal name of the program may be somewhat different)
  • Completed less than half of her/his planned program of study (with preference given to students who are still early in their studies)
  • A woman and/or a member of a racial/ethnic group that is currently underrepresented in the computing field in the country where the student will earn the degree
