Illinois students invited to open house

08.05.13 -

The University of Illinois’ National Center for Supercomputing (NCSA) has a history of encouraging and nurturing innovative concepts. NCSA is looking for highly motivated, creative Illinois undergraduate students to continue this tradition by participating in hands-on research fellowships during the 2013-2014 academic year.

The NCSA SPIN (Students Pushing Innovation) program offers paid internships to Illinois students who can contribute to challenging projects alongside the center’s expert staff, or who would like to pursue their own innovative projects with support from NCSA colleagues and mentors.

To learn more about SPIN and collaborative opportunities at NCSA, attend the SPIN Open House from 4 to 6 p.m. Aug. 27 in the first floor atrium of the NCSA Building (1205 W. Clark St., Urbana). Then formulate a project or define an area of exploration and submit your proposal by Sept. 6.
