To inspire women to join the ever growing field of Information Security, the (ISC)² Foundation, each year, will award up to three scholarships totaling up to US$40,000.
Application period opens January 1, 2015 and closes at Midnight on March 31, 2015.
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 and part-time students seeking their degree online or at night also qualify.
Applicants who do not receive the Women's Scholarship may be referred to the Graduate and Undergraduate panels for consideration of award in that category.
