An XSEDE-wide effort is underway to expand the community by recruiting and enabling a diverse group of students who have the skills - or are interested in acquiring the skills - to participate in the actual work of XSEDE. The name of this effort is XSEDE EMPOWER ( Expert Mentoring Producing Opportunities for Work, Education, and Research ).

From Phan Phu, California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, participant in spring 2018:
"On January 13, 2018, I presented “Spectroscopic and Computational Studies of Metal Nitrosyl Complexes to Elucidate the Mechanism of Nitrite Reductase” at 30th Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium in Santa Clara, California. In March 2018, I will be presenting my results collected during XSEDE EMPOWER internship at the 255th ACS National Meeting in New Orleans, LA.“
From April Horton, Bluffton University, participant in fall 2017:
"I presented at Bluffton University’s Research Fair for my XSEDE EMPOWER Program internship entitled “Sonification and Visualization of Scientific Data.” This poster presentation session allowed me to share my research with other Bluffton students while encouraging them to pursue research opportunities they are interested in."
