Grants to USA universities, colleges, and nonprofit educational and research organizations for research addressing privacy and security in technology. Consideration will be given to proposals addressing cybersecurity and privacy through one or more of the following disciplines: computing, communication and information sciences; engineering; economics; education; mathematics; statistics; and social and behavioral sciences.
Proposals that advance the field of cybersecurity and privacy within a single discipline or interdisciplinary efforts that span multiple disciplines are both encouraged.
The goals of the Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program are aligned with the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan (RDSP) and the National Privacy Research Strategy (NPRS) to protect and preserve the growing social and economic benefits of cyber systems while ensuring security and privacy. The RDSP identified six areas critical to successful cybersecurity R&D: (1) scientific foundations; (2) risk management; (3) human aspects; (4) transitioning successful research into practice; (5) workforce development; and (6) enhancing the research infrastructure.
The NPRS, which complements the RDSP, identifies a framework for privacy research, anchored in characterizing privacy expectations, understanding privacy violations, engineering privacy-protecting systems, and recovering from privacy violations. In alignment with the objectives in both strategic plans, the SaTC program takes an interdisciplinary, comprehensive and holistic approach to cybersecurity research, development, and education, and encourages the transition of promising research ideas into practice.
Large projects must be pursuant to the CORE designation. CORE is the main focus of the SaTC research program, spanning the interests of NSF's Directorates for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), Engineering (ENG), Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE). Interdisciplinary proposals are welcomed to CORE.
GrantWatch ID#: 175788
In FY 2017, NSF anticipates approximately three large awards.
Large projects have a total budget of $1,200,001 - $3,000,000 over five years.
Large projects have a duration of up to five years.
Proposals may only be submitted by the following:
-Universities and Colleges - Universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in, the US acting on behalf of their faculty members. Such organizations also are referred to as academic institutions.
-Nonprofit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional societies and similar organizations in the U.S. associated with educational or research activities.
The window for full proposal submissions is October 12 through October 19, 2016.
Full proposals may be submitted via FastLane or Grants.gov.
