INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF CYBER STARS

Welcome to the GenCyber Grant Proposal Webpage

The GenCyber program strives to be a part of the solution to the Nation’s shortfall of cybersecurity professionals by offering summer cybersecurity camp experiences for students and teachers at the K-12 level. The goals of the GenCyber Program are to:

  • Increase interest in cybersecurity and diversity in the cybersecurity workforce of the Nation.
  • Help all students understand correct and safe on-line behavior.
  • Improve teaching methods and cybersecurity content for K-12 curricula.

To meet these goals, GenCyber solicits proposals to conduct summer camps for students and teachers at the K-12 level. The GenCyber student camps provide students with age-appropriate cybersecurity awareness learning opportunities for K-12 students in a standards-based and organized curriculum promoting the GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts and/or First Principles, online safety, and ethics. The GenCyber teacher camps provide a comprehensive experience involving practice in implementing the GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts and/or First Principles, ethics, and opportunities for classroom observations and practicum involving hands on experiences. These programs should include helping teachers with the preparation of cybersecurity lesson plans designed for teachers to take back to their classrooms.

Although the primary focus is on the summer camp, programs are encouraged to add follow-on activities/opportunities for the GenCyber participants to continue their cybersecurity learning beyond the summer camp experience.

The application process for GenCyber grants is currently closed.
