The NYU-Poly CSAW Cybersecurity Summer Research and Training Program provides a unique opportunity for computer science faculty at two- and four-year colleges to receive instruction in the fundamental concepts of cybersecurity, engage in cutting-edge research projects, and learn to mentor cybersecurity competition teams. The effort is part of a three-year program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, in conjunction with NYU-Poly.
Ten qualified college faculty members will be selected for two weeks of intensive instruction in the basic concepts of cybersecurity followed by four weeks of research engagement at NYU-Poly. The program takes place daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. All evenings and weekends are free for faculty to explore New York City and the surrounding Downtown Brooklyn area. Over the remaining academic year, faculty and their students will engage in research projects with NYU-Poly professors.
The accepted faculty will also establish a student teams to participate in the national CSAW Capture the Flag challenge. This event, which is conducted annually by NYU-Poly, attracts thousands of students and builds a community that is passionate about cybersecurity.
Funding: Faculty will receive a $5,000 stipend for participating in the CSAW Cybersecurity Summer Research and Training Program. NYU-Poly will provide up to $500 in travel vouchers as well as housing for those who need it.
