Department of Energy Announces Graduate Funding for High Energy Physics

On April 28, the U.S. Department of Energy announced $10 million in funding for traineeships in computational high energy physics. This funding will support graduate student research that trains the next generation of computational scientists and engineers needed to deliver scientific discoveries. “Scientific collaborations increasingly rely on complex software and computing infrastructure to achieve their goals and advance discovery science,” said Harriet Kung, DOE Deputy Director for Science Programs for the Office of Science and Acting Associate Director of Science for High Energy Physics (HEP). “These DOE Traineeships in Computational HEP will ensure the next generation of scientists and engineers develop the computing expertise they need.”
