Following a successful pilot┬áprogram in 2016, NIST is again offering funding to establish Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Stimulate (RAMPS) cybersecurity education and workforce development. As part of the Department of Commerce’s Principles for Highly Effective Workforce Investments and Good Jobs Principles, RAMPS will support the NIST-led NICE program.

The NIST National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) is seeking applications from eligible applicants for activities to establish community-based partnerships to develop cybersecurity career pathways that address local workforce needs.

Effective partnerships will focus on bringing together employers and educators to develop a skilled workforce to meet industry needs within a local or regional economy. NIST anticipates funding up to eighteen awards of up to $200,000 through cooperative agreements.

Applicants must demonstrate through letters of commitment that at least one of each of the following types of organizations is committed to being part of the proposed regional alliance:

  • local employer or owner or operator of critical infrastructure.

The deadline to apply is August 7, 2023, by 11:59pm Eastern Time.

A webinar for interested applicants will be held on June 13, 2023 at 1-2pm Eastern Time to provide general information regarding this funding opportunity, offer general guidance on preparing applications, and answer questions.
