Undergraduate Research: XSEDE EMPOWER Program

Engage in a variety of XSEDE activities, such as computational and/or data analytics research and education in all fields of study, networking, system maintenance and support, visualization, and more. Apply to be a mentor or a student participant. The program provides a stipend for students and resources for the training of those students who work on XSEDE projects for one semester, one quarter, one summer, or longer. There are three tiers of participation for students depending on existing skill level: learner, apprentice, and intern.

To participate, undergraduate students from any US degree-granting institutions apply to the program and are matched with a mentor who has a project that contributes to the work of XSEDE. Students are strongly encouraged to recruit their own mentors or match themselves with mentors who have projects listed on the website. Participation is strongly encouraged for mentors and students belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in HPC, including, but not limited to, women, minorities, and persons with disabilities.

To participate in mentoring a student, create a position by following the application link below. If you also have a student in mind to work with, that student should also submit an application.
