2022 SIGHPC Fellows Announced
ACM’s Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing (SIGHPC) has announced the eleven recipients of the ACM SIGHPC Computational and Data Science Fellowships for 2022. The fellowships are highly competitive, and are awarded after a rigorous merit review. The fellowship program, previously funded by Intel, is now funded exclusively by SIGHPC.
The program is intended to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, including women as well as students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in the computing field. The fellowship provides $15,000 annually for study anywhere in the world.
Students were nominated by their graduate advisors. Nominees spanned disciplines from biomedical engineering and computer science to quantum chemistry and geophysics, and represented large, mid-sized, and small institutions in countries around the world. More than 90% of nominees were female, and 45% were identified as an underrepresented minority in their country of study.
