Received Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York (WiTNY) Grant as Co-PI

I am pleased to announce that I have received a grant from Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York (WiTNY) as co-principal investigator, along with Dr. Saptarshi Debroy, for the project entitled “Project Khaleesi–Mentoring Tomorrow’s Cybersecurity Queen of Dragons.” The grant amount, backed by the Verizon Foundation, is $125,000 US. The project will aim to promote cybersecurity and secure software engineering education and research to women students entering CUNY as freshmen with an interest in STEM. WiTNY is an initiative to facilitate, encourage, and enable increased participation of women in technology fields, both as entrepreneurs and academics, in New York.

The Connected Futures Research and Prototyping Challenge

The Connected Futures Research and Prototyping Challenge is an opportunity for faculty, researchers and students to collaborate on prototyping new media projects across a range of areas such as the internet of things, empowering citizen journalism, virtual reality and more. University teams from accredited NYC universities are eligible to apply for up to $25,000 in funding for their projects. The application is live at: bit.ly/verizonchallenge and the application deadline is December 15th. Selected teams will be notified on December 18th, and the program will begin in late January. The program includes three monthly feedback sessions in February, March and April for the teams to report on their prototyping progress. The feedback panels will include faculty experts and Verizon executives who will offer advice on prototype development. Questions? Contact: amy.chen@nycmedialab.org
