Dighton “Mac” Fiddner of the Political Science Department has received a President’s Advancing Grantsmanship Award of $2,500.
The award was given in recognition of Fiddner’s work in submitting a $38,600.08 grant proposal to the Gerda Henkel Foundation to sponsor an international roundtable discussion on “Cyberspace National Security Policy and Strategy” during the 2012–2013 fiscal year. This roundtable will continue Fiddner’s efforts to collaborate with other researchers and policy makers to identify cyber-based threats to U.S. national security and to spur the development and implementation of a comprehensive national program to deal effectively with these threats.
The Grantsmanship Award was developed by the Office of the President at IUP in 2010 to encourage and support faculty grantsmanship. The fund provides a $2,500 award for tenure-track faculty members who submit a grant proposal of at least $25,000.
