Infosec Institute, a cybersecurity education provider, has launched $225,000 in cybersecurity education scholarship opportunities to help veterans, students and underrepresented groups in security launch and advance their careers.
The Infosec Accelerate Scholarship Program was established in 2018 to encourage new talent to join the security industry and close the growing cybersecurity skills and diversity gap.
“Cybersecurity education can be cost and time prohibitive," said Jack Koziol, Infosec Institute CEO and Founder. "Our goal with these scholarships is to break down the barrier of entry, helping fill security roles with talent who bring new perspectives and experiences to our industry.”
The Infosec Accelerate Scholarship Program includes five categories. Applications are now open to women, military personnel and veterans, people of color, undergraduate students and those in the LGBTQ+ community.
The 2022 Infosec Accelerate Scholarship Program application deadline is July 31, 2022. Infosec will announce scholarship winners in the first week of September. Applicants can apply for more than one category if they meet the criteria and submit a separate application for each.
