NSF Fellowships for Transformative Computational Science using CyberInfrastructure (CI TraCS)

3:46 pm in Educational Programs by CSS

The CI TraCS Fellowship seeks to emphasize the central role of computational concepts, methodologies, and technologies in all sciences (including physical, biological, geological, mathematical, social, behavioral, economic, computer, information, and data), and to bridge the large gaps in training, language, approach, perspective, and knowledge that continue to divide inherently multidisciplinary computational disciplines.  It will enable recent doctoral graduates to attain the necessary multidisciplinary expertise to effectively leverage cyberinfrastructure to significantly benefit specific disciplines and society at large.
