Call for Projects: XSEDE Student Engagement Program

The XSEDE Student Engagement Program is seeking projects for undergraduate and graduate students to work on during a 10-week immersion experience for this summer. Working with XSEDE researchers and staff, students make meaningful contributions to research, development and systems projects that benefit the national scientific and computational community. In exchange, students are provided travel support for project orientation and to attend the XSEDE'14 conference in Atlanta, GA in July, and a small stipend.

Specifics on program:

Projects for 2014 can address a wide variety of computational needs. Many of the projects allow students to work remotely (from their home or home institution), although some require the student to be onsite at their supervisor's institution. All projects will have well-defined work plans, established collaboratively with the project supervisors at an orientation meeting to be held in late May/early June. Students are expected to participate in surveys and other evaluation activities, to help XSEDE track the effectiveness and impact of the program. Available projects will be listed on the XSEDE 2014 Student Engagement Projects website and applications will be accepted beginning in January.

How to submit:

To apply, complete the form online at, providing a description of the project and the skills you believe the student should have to be able to succeed. Also let us know if your project, organization or institution will be able to provide any additional support for the student – housing, help with travel, etc.
