AWARD:  70 awards totaling $74.5M in FY13.  Approximately 5 Education awards, 51 Small awards, 12 Medium awards and 2 Frontier awards in FY13.

SCOPE:  This program welcomes proposals that address Cybersecurity from a Trustworthy Computing Systems perspective (TWC); a Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences perspective (SBE); and a Transition to Practice perspective (TPP) (see below). In addition, we welcome proposals that integrate research addressing two or more of these perspectives as well as proposals focusing entirely on Cybersecurity Education (see below). Proposals may be submitted in one of the following three categories:

–           Small projects: up to $500,000 in total budget, with durations of up to three years

–           Medium projects: $500,001 to $1,200,000 in total budget, with durations of up to four years

–           Frontier projects: $1,200,001 to $10,000,000 in total budget, with durations of up to five years

Projects with Trustworthy Computing Systems and/or Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences perspectives may include a Transitions option, described in a supplemental document of no more than five pages. This document should describe how successful research results are to be further developed, matured, and experimentally deployed in organizations or industries, including in networks and end systems used by members of the NSF science and engineering communities. Proposals with a Transitions option may exceed the above-stated maximums up to $167,000 for small projects, $400,000 for medium projects and $750,000 for Frontier projects.

In addition, the SaTC program seeks proposals addressing Cybersecurity Education with total budgets limited to $300,000 and durations of up to two years. Cybersecurity education projects may not include any of the three perspectives named above.
