Data Science Center Fellows

The Data Science Center will support two Faculty Fellows each academic year in pursuit of excellence in research, teaching, and engagement in data science at the University of Wyoming.

Faculty Awards

Faculty Fellows

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.

Faculty Awards

Graduate Computing Scholars

Graduate Computing Scholars are proudly supported for being outstanding graduate students demonstrating immense potential in their computational careers. They are enrolled in Ph.D. or Master's programs at the University of Wyoming, pursuing research projects where innovative computing and/or the advancement of computing play a crucial role.


Sure program

School of Computing Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE)

The School of Computing provides opportunities for Wyoming undergraduate students to participate in mentored hands-on research and development projects. All areas of computing are in scope, including supercomputing, data analytics, artificial intelligence, visualization, edge computing, robotics, modeling and simulation and more. All academic domains are in scope, including engineering, science, social and behavioral sciences, humanities, performing arts, and more. The SoC’s SURE program offers paid internships to Wyoming students who have the motivation and basic skills to contribute to projects.

Program Dates: Now to end of Spring semester 2024


Faculty Awards

UW Derecho Professors

The UW Derecho Professor designation 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.

Visiting Scholars

Visiting Scholars

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 scholar. 


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 development.
