SFS Principal Investigator Privacy Act Statement

Picture of a Charm in the shape of a lock

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:

  1. The PI’s full name.
  2. The name of the educational institution.
  3. The department or branch.
  4. The institution’s address.
  5. Phone and fax numbers.
  6. The PI’s Email address.
This information is available to all site visitors. Providing this information is voluntary, however, if you do not provide this information the website will not list your university as participating in the program and you will not have access to resumes’ of participating students in your program.
