Apply for SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships
ACM SIGHPC and Intel are encouraging graduate students in data science and computational science to apply for an international program of graduate fellowships that aims to increase diversity in these fields. To qualify, you must be pursuing a graduate degree in computational or data science, be less than halfway through your planned program of study, and be woman and/or a member of a racial/ethnic group that is currently underrepresented in the computing field in the country where you will earn the degree. The deadline for applications is April 30.
