Description: The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) Program awards annual grants to protect and preserve the growing social and economic benefits of cyber systems while ensuring security and privacy. 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. The SaTC program welcomes proposals that address cybersecurity and privacy, and draw on expertise in one or more of these areas: computing, communication and information sciences; engineering; education; mathematics; statistics; and social, behavioral, and economic sciences. Proposals that advance the field of cybersecurity and privacy within a single discipline or interdisciplinary efforts that span multiple disciplines are both welcome.
Eligible applicants are universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in and having a campus located in the United States acting on behalf of their faculty members. Also eligible are nonprofit, nonacademic US organizations, such as independent museums, observatories, research labs, and professional societies associated with educational or research activities. Applications must be submitted online.
