Support PSC

For nearly 3 decades Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center has provided university, government and industrial researchers with access to the most powerful systems for high-performance computing (HPC), commnuications and data storage and handling.


Support us in our mission to:

  • help researchers make new discoveries in the fields of science and engineering
  • push the boundaries of what computers and communications networks can do
  • teach the next generation of scientists to take advantage of high-performance computing systems
  • enhance K-12 education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
  • improve the competitiveness of U.S. companies
  • adapt state-of-the-art HPC technology from commercial use to scientific use



By becoming a patron of PSC you help us to pursue unique and innovative initiatives—locally  and nationally. Current notable programs include:

  • the most powerful collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world (XSEDE)
  • global malaria eradication project (VECNet)
  • modeling and simulating biological systems from tissue to the molecular level (MMBioS)
  • resources and tools for teachers and students (Resources for Educators)

Your support also advances the Pittsburgh region's competitive position in high technology opportunities and job growth.
