Cybersecurity in universities – Study visits to the U.S.

The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission together with Fulbright Commissions based in Poland, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovak Republic invites you to apply for cybersecurity study visits in the U.S. A visit in a hybrid format, designed for university representatives, will be organized between March and June 2021 (see tentative framework below).*

Please note: The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose limitations on international travel, a threat to everybody’s health and raises the level of uncertainty about the possibility of running an in-person program as originally designed. A hybrid approach to the program means there will be 2 components – an online and an in-person one, together covering the draft program and learning objectives stated in the original plan.

We welcome applications from academics in the field of cybersecurity, representing universities that have cybersecurity programs (or with a program near to open).
