The National Science Foundation (NSF) is awarding $15 million in grants for the development, deployment and testing of future internet architectures that are designed to enhance security, respond to emerging service challenges and increase scalability.

In 2010, the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) at the NSF announced awards for four  projects, each worth up to $8 million over three years, as part of the Future Internet Architecture (FIA) program. The awards enabled researchers at dozens of institutions across the US to pursue new ways to build a more trustworthy and robust internet.
