Central Virginia Node: 2022 Experiential Learning Program

Proposals due June 1, 2022

The Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) is establishing Virginia as a global center of excellence at the intersection of security, autonomous systems, and data. With a mission of research, innovation, and workforce development, CCI serves as a catalyst for the commonwealth's long-term leadership in this sector through the leadership of a central hub and four regional nodes. The Central Virginia Node (CVN) is led by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).  

CVN seeks to support programs of experiential learning that build on the expertise of the higher education institutions that are members of the CVN network and extend experiential learning opportunities aligned with CCI to students across the commonwealth. The objective is to enhance students’ essential skills to enter the cybersecurity workforce once they finish their current studies; we are particularly interested in projects that expose students to experiences in industry. With this grant, CVN will support programs that are aligned with CCI’s overall mission and CVN’s focus areas.  

Proposals are due June 1, 2022. Last day for Q&A is May 15, 2022.
