Missouri S&T researchers will continue to combat cybersecurity threats by training the next generation of experts in the field with a $225,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. This additional grant brings the S&T program’s total to over $3 million in funding.

The grant will fund S&T’s computer science department’s “Scholarship for Service” master of science degree and Ph.D. students, who will specialize in cybersecurity. After graduating, the scholarship recipients will serve at a federal agency a period of time equal to the length of their scholarship.

Dr. Sajal Das, above left in 2018, leads the project titled “MASTER: Missouri Advanced Security Training, Education and Research.” He is the Daniel St. Clair Endowed Chair and professor of computer science at Missouri S&T.
