Feds provide scholarships to students of information assurance and computer security

The federal government’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) provides scholarship grants for students interested in information assurance and computer security, under an initiative established by the National Science Foundation known as the Scholarship for Service program, or SFS.

Under this program, SFS provides selected four-year colleges and universities with scholarship grants for worthy students.

“Participating students who receive scholarships from this program are required to serve a 10-week internship during their studies and complete a post-graduation employment commitment equivalent to the length of the scholarship or one year, whichever is longer,” says a notice posted by OPM in the Federal Register on April 19.

OPM estimates that 630 individuals or households per year will use a federal Web site related to SFS to gather information and apply for these scholarships.

The SFS program is part of the Federal Cyber Service Training and Education Initiative that was described in President Barack Obama’s national plan for information systems protection.

Further information about SFS is available from Kathryn Roberson, of the OPM in San Antonio, TX, at [email protected].
