A grant to Indiana University’s (IU) Ostrom Workshop Program on Cybersecurity and Internet Governance will enhance the critical cybersecurity infrastructure resilience of under-resourced stakeholders across the Midwest, focusing on local municipalities, school corporations, and small utilities. In partnership with IU’s Maurer School of Law, IU’s Ostrom Workshop Program will launch three interrelated initiatives: (a) the IU Cybersecurity Clinic, which will directly support operators in need of on-the-ground cybersecurity expertise while providing applied training opportunities for multidisciplinary teams of students working under faculty supervision; (b) the development of a resource center that will distill critical infrastructure research, which will be distributed through Cybersecurity Policy Boot Camps; and (c) the launch of the Midwest Cybersecurity Alliance, to spread these findings and help partner universities and community colleges create similar clinics and boot camps.

Grants to this Grantee
for research on public perceptions of philanthropy by the Lilly School
Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy increases the understanding of philanthropy and improves the practice worldwide through critical inquiry, interdisciplinary research, teaching, training, and civic engagement. The school offers degrees in philanthropic studies and does research in the field of philanthropy. One project is Giving USA, a long-running, comprehensive analysis of the sources and uses of U.S. charitable giving. Recently, the school has also developed a research dissemination strategy to help academic research better reach donors and foundation staff so that it can inform their work. This grant will support a research project on Americans’ attitudes and perceptions on institutional philanthropy.
