NCSA works toward overcoming these access barriers by implementing efforts such as the Students Pushing INnovations (SPIN) internship program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. SPIN provides undergraduates the opportunity to address real challenges in high-performance computing, data analysis and visualization, cybersecurity, and other areas of interest. Internship eligibility is not restricted to specific majors. SPIN welcomes all undergraduates in good academic standing to apply. This program aims to create an inclusive and collaborative environment by pairing interns with field experts to enhance tech skills, and in turn, contribute to diversification of STEM fields.
