Ohio Supercomputer (OSC) Fellowship Program

The goal of the OSC Fellowship Program is to provide current or new UA OSC users a temporary source of funds (in FY19 and FY20) while they apply for funds through normal grant application processes to other agencies.  This internal funding program is being administered by the Faculty Research Committee with assistance from the Office of Research Administration.  The application deadline for this year’s competition is February 9, 2018 at 4 pm.
