The U.S. Department of Defense is offering Cyber Information Assurance Scholarships to U.S. citizens who will be Juniors, Seniors, or graduate students in the fall of 2017. This is a one-year scholarship covering full books, tuition, and a $22,500 stipend for undergraduates or a $30,000 stipend for graduate students. The scholarships are renewable but will require a new application each year. Payback is one year of federal service in a cyber security or digital forensics role for each year of scholarship, or four years of military service. Applicants must be eligible for a security clearance. Applicants are not limited to students in the Department of Information Technology and Management but may also be students in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Business, but because of the nature of the application, knowledge of and a clear understanding of cyber security is a necessity. A printed and signed physical application must be delivered to the ITM Department office, Perlstein Hall suite 223 later than 8:30am Monday May 22nd so we can evaluate and include your scholarship in our funding request, which is due May 31st. The application and details of the scholarship are included below.
