Blue Waters Undergraduate Internship program

We would like to make you and your undergraduate students aware of the Blue Waters undergraduate internship program. The NSF Blue Waters project will be funding 17 undergraduate research internships again this year. This program provides for: 1) a $5000 stipend for the student over the course of the year; 2) travel, accommodations, meals and participation in a two-week intensive Petascale Institute at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA); 3) travel to the SC11 conference in Seattle in November.

Because this program is run nationally NCSI is soliciting student applications from across the country, in addition they are seeking faculty with research or educational projects involving high performance computing to post intern positions through our site. Positions can be created for a particular student, or open to qualified applicants.
