INTERNATIONAL ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

International Academic
Scholarships

One In Tech seeks to make both broad and in-depth impacts in infusing untapped talent into the cyber workforce throughout the world. While some of the awards are US-based, many are international, such as these. The OIT Scholarships are developed, funded, and provided directly from OIT, and at times in collaboration with partners. These scholarships provide support for individuals who are of a population under-served and/or under-represented in the cyber fields, with academic and career pathways, ultimately culminating in cyber-related careers. By providing monetary support and resources, OIT Scholarships are designed to secure and accelerate career trajectories, and subsequently, narrow the workforce gap.

Selected applicants receive between $500 – $7500 USD OR ANOTHER AMOUNT AS APPLICABLE TO REGION/ECONOMY/EDUCATION SYSTEM studying in cyber -related fields. In addition, awardees receive a “Career Bundle” which provides support materials and services. OIT awards serve a multitude of students including: Each scholarship opportunity has a specific criteria which will be listed within the scholarship opportunity announcement and application. Funding is most commonly paid via wire directly to the awardees’ academic institutes in which they are enrolled but may also be paid directly.

“I was born and raised in Bangladesh. As a third-world developing country, it is not technologically advanced and the practice of cybersecurity is not visible. Coming from this background it has been hard to join a skilled workforce who are technologically advanced, but I get more opportunities to flourish. I plan to join a role in a SOC team, and one day be a successful security analyst and penetration tester. This scholarship will support me immensely in determining the right path and my career progression.”

“I began my career in IT working as the first female Network Technician for a CU in Maine. I was promoted to the first female Systems Administrator, and then the first female Cybersecurity Analyst. In 5 years, I see myself working in a Cybersecurity training or directing position creating meaningful, fun, and engaging cyber training content. As I move forward in my own career, I intend to support initiatives that support and encourage other under-represented communities. This scholarship reinforces my belief that I am working toward the right goals, and it motivates me to continue to do my best.”

—Meghan Brejwo

“Challenges to my education and personal identity were far from few growing up in rural Maine, as one of five individuals of color in my entire high school. I picked a nontechnical undergraduate major with lower costs, which initially pushed me away from STEM. However, it did not forever hinder my passion, as I’m currently pursuing my M.S. in Cybersecurity. Next, I plan to move into a Cybersecurity Agent and leader role. This scholarship would help me expand my education and certifications making me more likely to secure a cybersecurity job in the near future.”
