The ACM/IEEE-CS HPC Ph.D. Fellowship Program honors exceptional Ph.D. students throughout the world with the focus areas of High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. HPC covers the areas of computational sciences, computational engineering, and computer science using the most powerful computers available at a given time.
The ACM/IEEE-CS HPC Ph.D. Fellowship Program also supports our long-standing commitment to workforce diversity and encourages nominations of women, minorities and all who contribute to diversity.
Students must be nominated by a full time faculty member at a PhD granting, accredited institution. They must be enrolled in a full-time Ph.

Fellowship recipients will be selected based on:
All applicants must meet minimum scholarship requirements at the institution where they are or will be registered.
- their overall potential for research excellence,
- the degree to which their technical interests align with those of the HPC community,
- their academic progress to-date, as evidenced by publications and endorsements from their faculty advisor and department head as well as a plan of study to enhance HPC related skills, and
