Funding Opportunity for K-12 Cybersecurity Education
The National Institute of Standards and Technology is pleased to announce funding on behalf of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) for the NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Outreach Program. NIST is soliciting applications from U.S.-located, non-Federal entities to assist NICE in its outreach efforts to build a K12 community that inspires cybersecurity career awareness with students in elementary school, stimulates cybersecurity career exploration in middle school, and enables cybersecurity career preparedness in high school.
NICE seeks to provide financial assistance to an organization engaged with stakeholders involved in helping K12 students pursue cybersecurity education and work-based learning opportunities through a year-round communication and engagement strategy that culminates in the annual NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference. See the full Notice of Funding Opportunity here.
The deadline to apply is Monday, June 1, 2020, by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. See the Grants.gov announcement and the full details of the Notice of Funding Opportunity for more information. For programmatic or technical questions, contact the NICE Program Office at email@example.com.
