Reps. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., and Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., introduced a new bill addressing the funding needs for the development of cybersecurity education programs.
The Cybersecurity Education Integration Act would create a $10M grant program for organizations to implement cybersecurity throughout curricula, Langevin said Tuesday. The bill would also direct the secretary of education to seek input from the Department of Homeland Security and the National Institute of Standards and Technology in forming the grant program. Efforts under the bill are intended to propagate cybersecurity education across educational institutions and workforce training.
Langevin and Thompson currently serve as co-chairs of the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus.
