Pathways Allocation

Pathways Awardees


The National Science Foundation approved allocations of supercomputing time on Frontera to 26 Pathway projects, starting in June 2020 and running for a year. Pathways allocations are designed to provide compute time to science teams with a strong scientific justification for access to a leadership-class computing resource. Successful applicants will use the allocation award to work with the Frontera team to scale their codes in order to effectively use the system.
