Susan Fratkin Scholarship

The Susan Fratkin Scholarship was established by the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) in honor of an ambassador for high performance computing (HPC) workforce development and a distinguished leader in state and federal relations.

CASC has joined TACC as a sustaining partner for the Sue Fratkin Scholarship. Sue Fratkin played a central role in the founding of CASC and served as the CASC Washington Liaison for 25 years. We are excited to recognize Sue’s commitment to science, computation, and the academic community through this scholarship and help grow the workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

The Susan Fratkin Scholarship aims to address educational inequities and support undergraduate student persistence in higher education. Specifically, scholarships will be awarded to Code@TACC alumni, majority are women and/or from underrepresented populations in STEM disciplines (African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native, Indigenous).
