Unidata organizes a variety of programs aimed at bringing together and supporting the geosciences education and research community.

    Unidata Summer Internships

    17 May to 30 July 2021

    The Unidata Summer Internship program offers graduate students and upper-level undergrads an opportunity to work with Unidata software engineers and scientists on projects drawn from a wide variety of areas that overlap atmospheric and computational sciences. Unidata's mission is to support the Earth Science research and education community with innovative data access, analysis, and visualization tools. Interns use, design, and/or modify existing Unidata software in innovative ways to better support the Unidata Community.

  • Equipment

    Equipment Award Grants

    Need gear?

    The Unidata Community Equipment Award grants program provides resources for educational institutions to purchase computing equipment that will let them take advantage of Unidata technologies for education and research. The goal is to encourage new members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the geosciences to join the Unidata community, and for existing members to continue their active participation so as to enhance the community process.

    Several grants of up to $20,000 are awarded each year.

  • Users Workshop

    Support and Training

    Learn to use software and

    Unidata offers technical support for all of the software it makes available to the education and research community. In addition, we offer software training courses and workshops in partnership with academic institutions and scientific conferences.

    Every three years, Unidata brings community members together for a Unidata Users Workshop, with themes focusing on new concepts or tools for education or research or both. Lectures by experts and hands-on lab instruction create a relaxed, active learning atmosphere among peers.

  • Collaboration

    with the Unidata Community

    Unidata participates in a wide variety of projects with the aim of helping to make data and tools available to a broader, more diverse audience. Our work with community members ranges from management of the Internet Data Distribution (IDD) network, which allows universities and research agencies to seamlessly share data in near real time, to working with professors to provide students with computing resources via the Unidata Science Gateway, to other activities aimed at sharing tools and data.
