1. VICEROY DECREE Virtual Institute

The VICEROY DECREE Virtual Institute is a consortium of 4 universities (Northern Arizona University, University of Houston, University of South Carolina, and Northeastern University as the lead) to provide a shared curriculum in cybersecurity, EMS, strategic foreign languages, and data science in order to increase the pipeline of highly qualified professionals, particularly from historically underserved groups, seeking careers in the DoD and industry partners. Undergraduate Scholars will have the opportunity to take courses and participate in workshops, seminars, and other industry-related events at partner institutions.

The DECREE Virtual Institute (Department of Defense Electromagnetic and Cyber Research and Experiential Education) is one of the 13 existing Virtual Institutes for Cyber and Electromagnetic Spectrum Research and Employ (VICEROY) awarded by the Griffiss Institute.

The VICEROY DECREE VI will establish a shared curriculum that will deliver advanced cyber, EMS, data science, cryptography, and strategic foreign language education, hands-on practical training, and research opportunities to a cohort of Northeastern University undergraduate students and ROTC cadets. The virtual institute will organize and offer multiple events for scholars and mentors to attend to meet and network with industry and DoD partners and to showcase knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Funding for VICEROY Decree provided by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, in collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory and Griffiss Institute.

Northeastern University is seeking applications from current undergraduate students to join our inaugural cohort of VICEROY DECREE scholars.

The Virtual Institutes for Cyber and Electromagnetic Spectrum Research and Employ (VICEROY) DoD Electromagnetic and Cyber Research and Experiential Education Virtual Institute (DECREE) is a consortium of four universities created in close collaboration with the Department of Defense (DoD) and Defense Information Base partners to address recruitment and training challenges faced in DoD-related cyber and Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) fields. The goal of the program is to grow the availability of well-qualified and trained students with essential knowledge, skills, and abilities required to plan, synchronize, and lead DoD-related cyber and EMS operations.

VICEROY DECREE scholars will receive a scholarship of up to $10,000 to participate in a virtual curriculum focused on cybersecurity, electromagnetic spectrum operations, data science, cryptography, and strategic foreign languages offered by a consortium of institutions.

Scholars will be eligible to take virtual, credit-bearing coursework from consortium institutions, have access to mentoring programs, as well as access to DoD-related internships, co-ops, and post-graduation employment opportunities. Scholars will be required to complete 8-10 credits within the VICEROY DECREE designated curriculum by the end of the spring 2024 semester, with at least one-third of credits taken outside their home institution.
