Cybersecurity Seed Grants



Cybersecurity Seed Grant 2020 Overview

With funding from the CU President Mark Kennedy, the objectives of this investment program are to promote research excellence in cybersecurity, to help pre-tenure faculty members establish research programs, and to assist an faculty members in becoming nationally competitive when seeking cyber-related funding from sources external to UCCS. 

Cybersecurity is inherently an interdisciplinary effort and proposals from all departments and colleges will be considered to include the technical and non-technical aspects, for example, medical disciplines, sociology, psychology, languages, data science, ethics, risk, policy, legal and other fields as they relate to cybersecurity. We also encourage cooperative efforts bringing these discipline areas together to solve hard cybersecurity problems. 

The proposals submitted under this funding program were evaluated by a panel of experts from across campus.
