Dr. Judy Simon Receives DOD Grant Approval

For release:  May 28, 2013

Dr. Judy Simon has received notice of approval for a federal grant for 2013-2014 to be funded by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). This is the sixth DoD grant Dr. Simon has been awarded since 2007.  These grants are normally approved for either of two purposes:  (1) capacity building grants to increase awareness and knowledge regarding Information Assurance topics (e.g., security and privacy) among students and/or faculty or (2) scholarships to fund students’ educational expenses in collegiate majors that might qualify them to be hired by DoD’s National Security Agency in the future.  These grants are highly competitive among all universities that have received the designation by DoD as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE).  Dr. Simon is co-director of the University of Memphis Center for Information Assurance, which manages all University of Memphis activities related to this designation.
