Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing (ACM SIGHPC) Computational & Data Science Fellowship


ACM SIGHPC created the Computational and Data Science Fellowships to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.



Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must:

  • Be a woman and/or a member of a racial/ethnic group that is currently underrepresented in the computing field in the country where the student will earn the degree.
  • Be pursuing a graduate degree – Master’s, PhD, or equivalent – in computational or data science (although the formal name of the program may be somewhat different).
  • Be either currently enrolled in a graduate program or accepted to begin in one no later than October 15.
  • Have completed less than half of their planned program of study (with preference given to students who are still early in their studies).

How to Apply

Advisor nomination required to apply. Apply and submit nominations on the ACM SIGHPC website.
