This project will expand the capability and involvement of Penn State students State in cyber-relevant disciplines. To support student needs, we have implemented a flexible and strong Scholarship for Service (SFS) program, based on customized mentoring for each student.

Through the program, we will (1) provide federal employers with exceptional entry-level professionals with the skills and attributes required to meet the Nation’s cybersecurity challenges and rise to the top of their field, (2) enhance our relationship with federal entities to ensure the success of the SFS program, and (3) ignite interest in IA careers and IA programs at Penn State and continue to demonstrate our support to the Nation’s cybersecurity enterprise.
