Applications open for Blue Waters Internships

The Blue Waters Student Internship Program (BWSIP) is actively seeking faculty and students to participate in year-long student internship opportunities. Students in the program will gain experiences involving the application of high-performance computing to problems in science, mathematics or engineering. The BWSIP is focused on promoting students of exceptional promise who may not have prior experience with parallel applications to become expert so that they can work extensively with those applications.

The Blue Waters Project offers unique opportunities for internships to students at any accredited degree granting institution in the United States. Applications are open through Feb. 3, 2017.

The program provides a student stipend for undergraduate participants totaling $5000, a two-week intensive Petascale Institute in 2017, access to the Blue Waters supercomputer, and, for a select number of interns who have excelled during the year, travel to the Blue Waters Symposium 2018.

Participation is strongly encouraged for students and faculty who are women, minorities, and/or persons with disabilities.

Faculty who would like to mentor an undergraduate student can post descriptions of available positions. Positions can be intended for a particular applicant or opened to all qualified applicants. Students must submit an application for consideration.
