Q: What expenses are covered for participating faculty?
A: Tuition, fees, books, and housing will be paid by Purdue University as a provision of the National Security Agency grant. The application fee, travel, summer salary (if applicable) and other expenses are not covered as a part of the grant, but may be covered by the faculty member's home institution.

Q: Does Purdue University have other similar programs?
A: Yes, we do have other faculty development programs in Information Assurance and Security. We will be hosting a one week "Introduction to Information Assurance and Security: Ethics, Social Issues, and Security" next summer as well. For additional information on this program, contact Lori Floyd at laf@cerias.purdue.edu.

Q: Can non-U.S. citizens participate in the IA Education program?
A: No, you must be a U.S. citizen. However, in future years it may be possible for non-U.S. citizens to participate, but they will not be eligible for the tuition fees, book and housing support.

Q: Can non-faculty members participate in the program?
A: The program is geared toward faculty members and the financial support is available only for faculty members. Faculty attendees will be expected to develop instructional materials that they use at their home institution to develop units and courses. The course assignments will be geared toward preparing instructional materials, therefore, non-faculty attendees probably would not benefit much from the program.
