During the Prime Minister’s US visit in January 2015, the two governments announced the Fulbright Cyber Security Awards as one of the measures to increase US-UK cyber security cooperation. 

The Cabinet Office will enable UK experts in cyber security to conduct research at any US institution for three to six months. Both governments agreed to support and fund these new awards. 

Applications are now open for the new Fulbright Cyber Security Award. The first cohort will take up their awards in the academic year 2016-17.
