The Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) Center seeks motivated undergraduate students who are eager to tackle challenges in science and engineering by using high performance  computing. If you are interested in working with computational models to address problems ranging from harnessing the destructive forces of hurricanes to answering fundamental questions in biology and ecology, […]

The ACM Women in Computing group has funding available to send graduate and undergraduate students to attend research conferences  in computer science. Note that the attendee does not have to be presenting at the conference. Awards are made on a rolling basis; for more details, visit the scholarships program’s webpage: http://women.acm.org/participate/scholarship/index.cfm
