The Fellowship program was initiated in 2014 by the Blue Waters project and has supported the computational and data analytics research goals of more than 55 PhD candidates. We encourage you to read the “Impact of the Blue Waters Fellowship Program” in the Journal of Computational Science Education,, to learn more about the program.

This is part of the Blue Waters sustained-petascale computing project, which is supported by the National Science Foundation (awards OCI-0725070 and ACI-1238993) the State of Illinois, and as of December, 2019, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Blue Waters is a joint effort of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and its National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
