The School of Computing at the University of Wyoming is inviting faculty members to
submit proposals for the Faculty Grants Program (currently not accepting applications).
The program aims to support projects that advance computing research, learning, and
engagement across the university, with a focus on aligning with university initiatives,
fostering applied computing, impacting student experiences, involving the School of
Computing, and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The School of Computing (SoC) mission is to position our land grant institution as:
a national leader in computing and digital research, education, and engagement; a
computational hub for students, faculty, staff, community, and our industry/state/academic
partners; a steward, supporter, and developer of digital skills and computational
thinking for all. Ensuring the quality, vitality, and diversity of the computing workforce
in Wyoming starts with supporting outstanding graduate students who are demonstrating
potential early in their computational careers.
TheUW Derecho Professordesignation provides named professors in any academic field with up to 5 million core
hours of access to both traditional compute nodes and accelerators on the Derecho
supercomputer at the NCAR Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC). Leveraging and enhancing
the UW-NCAR partnership, the initiative contributes to recruiting and retaining UW
faculty whose research program in computing will be strengthened through a flexible
and guaranteed allocation on this resource.
The School of Computing is pleased to offer grants to support short-term visiting
scholars. The grants, up to $10,000 per visitor, may support visiting faculty, post-docs,
or advanced graduate students (in the final 2 years of studies). The funds may be
used to cover travel, lodging, and meal costs as well as a stipend for the visiting
The University of Wyoming already has a wealth of resources that support research
computing and data science in different ways. The mission for the School of Computing
includes a role to be a computational hub for faculty, staff, and our industry, state,
academic, and community partners. A new UW Research Computing network is working to
collect information about the different services, infrastructure, and expertise for
computing and data science that will soon be available. In the meantime, on this page,
we list some of the UW units that are involved in computing support, research, and
