Scholarship For Service (SFS) is a unique program designed to increase and strengthen the cadre of federal information assurance professionals that protect the government's critical information infrastructure. This program provides scholarships that fully fund the typical costs that students pay for books, tuition, and room and board while attending an approved institution of higher learning. The scholarships are funded through grants awarded by the National Science Foundation. The program is currently accepting applications for a start in Fall 2014. More details can be found at the SFS Scholarship Site.
DoD IASP Scholarships
Information assurance (security) is considered so important to our national defense that a formal DoD Information Assurance Scholarship Program (DoD IASP) was established by the National Defense Authorization Act for 2001 (Public Law 106-398). The purpose is to promote the education, recruitment, and retention of rising junior and senior undergraduate and graduate/doctoral students in information assurance, information technology, and cybersecurity (IA/IT/cybersecurity) studies and of students seeking graduate certificates in information assurance disciplines. Typically, applications are accepted in late Fall/early Spring for the upcoming academic year. Unfortunately, there will be no new scholarships for AY14/15.
