Blue Waters Graduate Fellowships

Blue Waters Graduate Fellowships provide PhD students with a year of support, including a $38,000 stipend, up to $12,000 in tuition allowance, an allocation of up to 50,000 node-hours on the powerful Blue Waters petascale computing system, and funds for travel to a Blue Waters-sponsored symposium to present research progress and results.

Applications for the 2016-2017 fellowships are due by midnight Pacific time on Feb. 3, 2017 at 11:59 Pacific time.

For the Fellowships, preference will be given to candidates engaged in a multidisciplinary research project that combines disciplines such as computer science, applied mathematics, and computational science applications. Applicants should be in the second or later year of their graduate program with a well-developed, related research proposal. Applicants must be a U.S. Citizen or a permanent resident of the U.S. by the time of the application deadline. Applications will be evaluated based on:

  • Academic record from undergraduate and graduate work

  • GRE scores

  • Related experience and service

  • Research plan and its relationship to use of the Blue Waters supercomputer

  • Letters of reference
