Current Fellowship Sponsors

Energy HPC Conference


Funded by the Energy High Performance Computing Conference (formerly the OG-HPC Conference), the Ken Kennedy Institute offers one-year supplemental fellowships in the amount of $7,500. The industry sponsored, one-year graduate fellowships are available to graduate students pursuing research related to high performance computing, computational science & engineering, and data science. Consideration will be given to students with a focus on high performance computing, software technology, modeling & simulation, data analytics & machine learning, industrial internet of things, and user experience & data visualization.

Moving forward, the Energy HPC Conference will be contributing funding to the Scott Morton Memorial Graduate Fellowship in the amount of $7,500. For more information, click here.
