The National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as amended, authorizes the National
Science Foundation (NSF) to promote and advance scientific progress in the
United States by competitively awarding grants and cooperative agreements for
research and education in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering.
The CyberCorps®: Scholarship For Service (SFS) program, as a program
within the Division of Undergraduate Education at NSF, was established under
this charter. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management's authority to collect
information in support of SFS program activities is derived from the above Law
through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between NSF and the U.S. Office of
Personnel Management (OPM) that tasks OPM with providing the operational
framework for the federal placement and tracking of students throughout the
academic phase and post graduation federal employment obligation. This requires
that we collect identifying information from Principal Investigators (PI’s) to
grant them access to their students’ records and enable interested individuals
to inquire about, and vie for, SFS program scholarships. The information
collected is as follows:
