Description: The Public Affairs Section of U.S. Embassy New Delhi (PAS New Delhi) seeks proposals for a project entitled “North India Cyber Security Hackathon.” Through this project, a grantee will organize and implement three North India Cyber Security Hackathons in New Delhi, Chandigarh and Dehradun to raise cyber security awareness and build capacity amongst university students in North India with an interest in coding and computer programming. The Hackathons will bring together 60 young programmers (20 from each city) with an interest in coding and computer programming for a 48-hour innovative on-the-spot solution to issues related to cyber security. The participants will be introduced to unique learning modules and qualified mentors. After each hackathon, recipients will promote the solutions/applications across North India in coordination with PAS New Delhi and hacker contact networks. The first hackathon should preferably occur in October 2017 as part of Cyber Security Awareness Month, with the additional two events following the first.
