A grant to the New America Foundation would support the establishment of an interdisciplinary center to convene thinkers around international security, technology policy, human rights, and social justice in the field of cybersecurity. This program is an important step in raising awareness about cybersecurity and its implications for international, national, economic, and individual security. If funded, the New America Foundation will create the "Cybersecurity for Everyone" Initiative, which will produce a body of research in areas of cybersecurity that have not been fully explored, build networks of thinkers focused on cybersecurity issues, and reach out to the media, policymakers, and citizens to increase understanding of cybersecurity.

for bridging open education and equity in pre-K-12 learning and teaching
New America is a nonpartisan think tank dedicated to renewing, reimagining, and realizing the promise of America in an era of rapid technological and social change. With this grant, New America’s Education Policy program will build on existing efforts to elevate the importance of equity and inclusion and the role of high-quality open educational resources and practices in ensuring academic excellence and well-being for all students. This will be accomplished through research and policy analysis, case making, community building, and the development of new resources and tools. (Substrategy: Sustainable Systems)
In 2020, #ShareTheMicInCyber was launched as a volunteer movement aiming to build a more diverse and effective cybersecurity field. The volunteer #ShareTheMicInCyber movement became widely popular. This grant supports the formalization of #ShareTheMicInCyber as a program under New America. This will enable #ShareTheMicInCyber to establish a strategic approach and structure to this work, as well as to launch a new fellowship program offering training, certifications, and research support to a diverse group of fellows.
