Overview
R Street Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization with a mission of engaging in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government. Support to its Cyber Program will allow for the creation of a center-right institution for American cyber policy that will pursue four interconnected projects: (a) agreed-upon metrics for the assessment of cybersecurity; (b) talent pipeline growth through the establishment of a fellows program; (c) local law enforcement capacity building; and (d) a pilot program for the creation of a volunteer cyber force modeled after the existing volunteer unit, the Estonian Defence League Cyber Defence Unit. Through this support, the program will also be able to hire additional senior scholars to bring unique perspectives to these issues and allow it to continue nurturing its existing relationships across sectors, which will undoubtedly grow and deepen toward broader advancement of the cybersecurity field.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Governance project to address legislative branch rules and processes  
The R Street Institute is an innovative, pragmatic think tank based in Washington. While R Street aims to limit the size and scope of governmental activity, it also thinks it important that government accomplish its core functions in an efficient, effective manner. Since Congress is a key governing institution, its dysfunction is a key issue of concern. This grant funds R Street’s Governance Project, which began in 2014 and explores the mechanisms and processes that Congress uses to carry out its oversight, regulatory, budget, and appropriations functions, as well as its role vis-à-vis the public and the other branches in the U.S. constitutional system.
for support of a free-market research project for birth control access  
R Street Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that engages in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government. This grant will support R Street to increase access to contraception and reproductive freedom through outreach, coalition building, media, and research that advances a case for contraceptive access based on individual autonomy, gender equality, and economic freedom.
for support of a project on national security and technology
