Early Grant Information for NGOs

The curriculum will publicly advertised and shared, royalty-free, to qualifying universities and educational institutions located in economic support fund (ESF) eligible countries within the Indo-Pacific region.

The purpose of the EAP-funded cybersecurity and IT fundamentals curriculum is to provide the ordinary student or young professional, including but not limited to those study cybersecurity/IT or working in a cybersecurity/IT-related field, with the technical prowess to effectively work in all sectors as they become increasingly more reliant on technology. The curriculum will also be made publicly available and royalty free to qualifying universities and organizations, which will help broaden the accessibility of the curriculum to regional universities and organizations that do not have sufficient funds to develop a similar curriculum on their own.

Activity 1: Consult with EAP, government, industry, and academia to identify the cyber/digital workforce skill gaps that currently exist, understand each sector’s priorities, and use this information to help create a IT/cybersecurity fundamental course curriculum targeted for university students, young professionals, and ordinary citizens.
Activity 2: Use the NICE mapping tool to identify knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) that students should possess to have a foundational understanding of cybersecurity/ITrelated challenges. Apply the KSAs identified in the NICE mapping tool to the course curriculum.
Activity 3: Develop an 8-to-16-week general education cybersecurity and IT fundamentals course to teach the skills identified in Activity 1 and 2.
Activity 4: Develop an abbreviated 1–2-week workshop equivalent to the cybersecurity and IT fundamentals course, which will be used to provide capacity-building in multilateral regional forums, bilaterally with foreign governments, industry, or civil society stakeholder, and on an ad hoc basis, per direction and consultation with EAP.
Activity 5: Engage and support universities located in ESF-eligible countries in the EAP region to adopt this curriculum and assist in providing expertise for universities to effectively deliver the course, such as through train-the-trainer workshops, identifying situational and technical constraints, and providing textbooks and potentially localizing curriculum materials if needed.
Activity 6: If there is excess funding or additional funds – adapt the curriculum and/or abbreviated training to be delivered as a self-study online course, which would be made free and publicly available to organizations and universities who qualify, to reach a wider audience.
