UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Some sharp minds at UI will try to change the country's cyber-security problem. The NSA gave the school a grant worth about $2 million. 18 professors and 18 graduate students will try to come up with long-term solutions to the problem. The UI is one of four universities to get the grant; Carnegie Mellon, the University of North Carolina and the University of Maryland are the other three.
