Applications open for Fulbright Cyber Security Awards

The US-UK Fulbright Commission is accepting UK applications for the inaugural Cyber Security Awards.

The US-UK Fulbright Commission is accepting UK applications for the inaugural Cyber Security Awards.

The awards were first announced during the Prime Minister’s visit to the US earlier this year, and will act as one of the ways in which to increase US-UK cyber security cooperation.

The winning UK experts in cyber security will be awarded the ability to carry out research at any US institution for three to six months. Their research outputs should “produce benefits of significance to the larger cyber security community”.

The UK and the US take cyber security very seriously,” said Matthew Hancock, minister for the Cabinet Office.

“Training up the next generation of ‘cyber defenders’ with the launch of the new Fulbright Cyber Security Award encourages future talent on both sides of the Atlantic. Today’s announcement delivers on the Prime Minister and President Obama’s commitment to work together to defend our critical sectors like our energy, transport and financial infrastructure from cyber threats.”
