CyberScholars

USA CyberScholars Program:

The Scholarship for Service (SFS) program offered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides scholarship funding for students in exchange for service in a government position for a period equal to the length of scholarship funding, typically two or three years. Students awarded an SFS scholarship participate in paid summer internships at a government agency and become part of the Federal CyberCorps, whose mission is to ensure the protection of the US Government’s information infrastructure. Upon graduation SFS scholars are required to serve in a paid cybersecurity-related position in a federal, state, or local government agency.
