Aspiring information security professionals have the opportunity to ease some of their educational financial burden with the (ISC)² Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship, offering undergraduate students studying information security grants of up to US$5,000 per recipient.
Application period opens March 1, 2015 and closes at Midnight on June 17, 2015. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted until official copies arrive. No awards will be disbursed until official transcripts have been received.
Must have completed at least the first year of an undergraduate degree program by August of the calendar year in which scholarship funding will commence and be academically eligible to continue at their educational institution in pursuit of their degree. Their grade point average (GPA) must be at least a 3.2 on a 4.0 scale (or an analogous rank based on a comparable scale). Students seeking a two-year Associates Degree, online and part-time students seeking their degree at night also qualify.
In order to meet the one year completion requirement, students who will be completing their first year of Undergraduate studies at the close of the application period, may submit an unofficial transcript for the spring semester that ends in May or *June of 2015. Those awarded a scholarship will be required to provide an official transcript for that last semester prior to funds being dispersed.
*No official or unofficial transcripts will be accepted after Midnight on June 17th.
