Over the last 12 months UIC’s Department of Computer Science has received over $7.5 million in federal grant funds in the area of electronic security, including a $3.2 million NSF IGERT grant.

Congratulations to UIC Computer Science professors Venkat Venkatakrishnan (PI) and Robert Sloan (co-PI) who have just been awarded $1,968,119 for the Scholarships for Service Program; titled “SFS Scholarships in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance,” from the National Science Foundation. Students receive tuition and a $20,000 annual stipend and after graduation must work in cybersecurity for a number of years equal to the number of years that they received the scholarship. This is open to both BS and MS students. 5-year duration, September 1, 2012 to August 31, 2017.
