The closing date for our Highly Skilled Workforce scholarships, open to Scottish and EU students, has been extended to May 28th. Scholarship applications should be made after completion of an MSc application. See https://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate/applying/.
We also have a scholarship for the MSc in HPC with Data Science programme that is provided by the Registers of Scotland. The closing date is May 21st - see https://www.ed.ac.uk/student-funding/postgraduate/uk-eu/science-engineering/informatics/registers-of-scotland
Both the above have nationality restrictions - our own John Fisher scholarships are open to all. See https://www.ed.ac.uk/student-funding/postgraduate/uk-eu/science-engineering/informatics/masters-hpc
You can see details of both HPC Masters courses at the Computing and Informatics web page.

The HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme includes access to world-class HPC systems and scientific collaboration with host researchers in any field. If you want to find out more about the programme then this video, originally part of the ARCHER series of webinars, is an excellent starting point.

Mats Simmermacher on his recent visit to Edinburgh through the HPC-Europa3 programme.
I am a theoretical chemist from the Technical University of Denmark near Copenhagen and I recently visited EPCC under the HPC-Europa3 transnational access programme. I was hosted by Dr Adam Kirrander at the University of Edinburgh's School of Chemistry.

This is a very exciting time for the MSc in HPC programmes. Our current students are halfway through their second semester of courses and are already starting work on developing their dissertation projects, while EPCC staff are looking forward to our summer move into the new Bayes Building. Located in the University's central area, this move will strengthen our existing collaborations with the School of Informatics.

Recently, with my Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) hat on, we helped to deliver a Software Carpentry Course here at Edinburgh organised by the School of Physics and Astronomy (SOPA). My fellow instructors were my EPCC colleagues Mike Jackson and Neelofer Banglawala, and SOPA's Andy Washbrook.

As a large part of our MSc cohort comprises students from outside the UK, and with the HPC Europa 3 programme currently bringing in researchers from mainland Europe, I thought it would be nice to invite our visitors to experience some traditional Scottish culture: a ceilidh.

The programme's Third Call for applicants is now open. It will close on Wednesday 28th February 2018.
The interdisciplinary HPC-Europa programme, which provides access to some of Europe’s top HPC facilities, is now running again. The programme pays travel and living costs for short collaborative research visits to a scientific host in another country. Applications can be submitted at any time, with four closing dates per year.

I am at SC 17 in Denver this week and having a really busy (but fun) time, giving some talks and catching up with people in the HPC community.
