CSGF Welcomes 2018-2019 Incoming Class of 26

Location: 
Ames, Iowa
Date: 
Friday, April 20, 2018

The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) was established in 1991 to train and produce the country's next generation of leaders in computational science. More than 450 students have been named fellows in the time since, each a representative for computing's capacity to advance science across a variety of disciplines.

Twenty-six awardees — the fellowship's twenty-eighth incoming class — will begin their studies this fall:

For the first time, the DOE CSGF includes a track for those pursuing an advanced degree in applied mathematics, statistics or computer science with research interests that help use emerging high-performance systems more effectively. Students focused on issues in high-performance computing as a broad enabling technology and not on a particular science or engineering application are included in this class.

As part of the program, these individuals receive exceptional benefits including a yearly stipend; full payment of university tuition and required fees (during the appointment period); and an annual academic allowance. Renewable for up to four years, the fellowship is guided by a comprehensive program of study that requires focused coursework in the areas of science/engineering, computer science and applied mathematics. It also includes a three-month practicum at one of 21 Department of Energy laboratories or sites across the country.

Additional details for each fellow will be available via the program's online fellow directory on or after September 1, 2018. Meanwhile, please contact us for further information.
