National Cyber League
NCL is an online Capture-the-Flag competition. Participants practice in a virtual Gym, then get access to an individual game and a team game. To learn more, navigate the NCL website and learn about all of its aspects.
The NCL competition consists of four main stages:
- Gym Training (Opens 3/28)

UVA is putting together a group of students who are interested in this season’s NCL competition. NCL participants are expected to meet regularly and use the “Gym Training” and “Preseason Game” to prepare for the “Individual Game”. Each participant will compete individually in the “Preseason Game” and the “Individual Game”.

Dissertation Grant - Microsoft Research
Broadening participation in computing is a core part of Microsoft's values; accordingly, we are excited to continue the Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant that aims to recognize, support, and mentor diverse doctoral students as they complete their dissertation research in computing-related fields.
This grant is open to doctoral students in their fourth year or beyond, studying computing topics at universities in the United States, Canada and Mexico, who are underrepresented in the field of computing which include those who self-identify as a woman, African American, Black, Hispanic, Latinx, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and/or people with disabilities. The program allows students to submit a grant proposal of up to $25,000 to support their dissertation research; grant recipients will also get to take part in a two-day career workshop at Microsoft Research Redmond this autumn. Grant proposals for 2019 are due on March 31.
You can read more about the Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant and find instructions to submit a grant proposal at their website.
