The UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC), a research and collaboration hub housed in UC Berkeley’s School of Information, announced its next Request for Proposals (RFP), which is open to all graduate students.
The CLTC funds research on a wide range of security issues, with a focus on four core priority areas: diversifying and expanding the cyber talent pipeline, addressing the long-term security implications of artificial intelligence and machine learning, exploring new cybersecurity governance and regulatory regimes, and protecting individuals and organizations who may be vulnerable online, such as political dissidents, human rights advocates, or journalists.
CLTC expects to award two types of grants:
- Seed Grants, generally below $15,000
- Discrete Project Grants, up to $100,000
Principal Investigators applying for CLTC grants must have an active UC Berkeley research affiliation and must be enrolled in or have completed a graduate degree. Proposals are due on Thursday, October 12, 2017.
