Each year, (ISC)² and the Center for Cyber Safety and Education partner together to offer scholarships to students around the world. There are three categories of scholarships in this program: Graduate, Undergraduate and Women’s. All are open to students pursuing cybersecurity degrees in any country in the world, whether they are full-time or part-time students, online or attending a campus.
The Graduate Scholarship period is open until January 15. Applicants must be pursuing, or plan to pursue, a master’s degree program, or a doctoral study, with a focus on cybersecurity or information assurance. The Undergraduate Scholarship application period will open January 1, 2019 and close March 1. To qualify, students must be pursuing, or plan to pursue, a degree with a focus on cybersecurity or information assurance. High school seniors and current undergraduate students are eligible. We will open up applications for the (ISC)² Women’s Scholarship on February 15, 2019 closing on April 15. Multiple recipients will be selected for each scholarship.
One of last year’s Graduate Scholarship winners, Mahak Sachdeva, said “(ISC)² has been a knowledge center for information security. As a woman and a strong proponent of reducing the diversity gap in cybersecurity, I feel proud to become part of this organization. As an international student from India studying for a Master’s of Cybersecurity Policy in the United States, this scholarship provides motivation for me and likeminded students that we can succeed in the information security industry.” Mahak plans to pursue her CISSP certification following completion of her graduate studies.
