US-BASED ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

Meeting workforce needs through Diversity and Inclusion

Infusing Untapped Talent into the Cyber Workforce

One in Tech provides a group of scholarships specifically for students based in the US. These are awarded most often through corporate, non-profit, and ISACA Chapter partners. Selected applicants receive between $1000 – $7500 USD studying in cyber-related fields. In addition, awardees receive a “Career Bundle” which provides support materials and services. Each scholarship opportunity has a specific criteria which will be listed within the scholarship opportunity announcement and application. Funding is most commonly paid directly to the awardees’ academic institutes in which they are enrolled.

The ultimate goal of these collaborative awards is to help students in specific regions to secure and accelerate career trajectories and, subsequently, narrow the workforce gap by pipelining untapped talent into employment opportunities.

“My Filipino parents taught me, “an education opens doors, and with enough hard work and dedication, anything becomes possible.” Computer science and cybersecurity were certainly not on the list of fields my parents expected me to take up as a child – I would be the first in my family to take up a technology career. Over the next few years, my main goal is to find a career in digital forensics.”
