U.S. Government to Give Scholarships for Cyber-Security Corps
The National Science Foundation has selected six universities to participate in a program to create a “cyber corps” of 200 computer-security students who would agree to join the government ranks upon graduation. The incentive is $8.6 million in scholarships, and participants are required to commit to at least one year for every year of tuition assistance received. The scholarship is designed to help fill the shortage of computer-security workers in government.
Selected schools include Carnegie Mellon University, Iowa State University, Purdue University, the University of Idaho, the University of Tulsa and the Naval Postgraduate School.
