Minority Serving Institution Participation Grant
The purpose of this project is to increase the participation of minorities
in the SC conferences by providing support to help faculty and/or IT
professionals from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) - Hispanic Serving
Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges, and Historically Black Colleges
and Universities (HBCUs) to attend the conference. It is our intention
in providing these grants to improve our ability to reach groups that
have traditionally not had access to high performance computing. This
project takes place in the context of EOT-PACI (www.eot.org)
outreach to MSIs under the NSF sponsored Advanced Networking with Minority
Serving Institutions (AN-MSI), www.anmsi.org.
The SC MSI Participation Grant is funded in part by IEEE and ACM. The
intended impact of this project goes beyond just increasing the numbers
of MSI participants in SC conferences to fostering collaborative relationships
between faculty at MSIs and research scientists at major research centers
and impacting the amount and quality of computational science education
