The National Institute of Standards and Technology will offer up to $1 million in cybersecurity education grants, the agency released in a statement. These Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Stimulate cybersecurity education and workforce development grants will work in partnership with NIST’s National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education. “We are encouraging more employer engagement in local communities to influence education and training providers to develop job-driven training that provides the skills that businesses need,” said NICE Director Rodney Petersen. NIST will offer a webinar with more details on the grants and the application process, which will conclude July 12, the report states.
