Chapter Scholarship Challenge
Tomorrow’s Security Depends on You Today!
As a member of (ISC)², you are no doubt familiar with the impending shortfall of cybersecurity professionals; a shortfall that may very well affect hundreds of companies as well as many nations.
As individuals, we are not able to solve this problem. But as a group, we can do our part to make a dent in it by supporting today’s aspiring cybersecurity professionals gain the invaluable education they will need by helping them to pay tuition and fees that are ever increasing.
Secure Donations Through Network for Good
How can you help?
By supporting your local chapter’s involvement in the Center for Cyber Safety and Education’s Chapter Scholarship Challenge. The Challenge is for (ISC)² Chapters to raise funds to award local high school students who are interested in pursuing studies in cybersecurity in college. Individual chapters are “challenged” to raise at least $1,500, of which $750 will be applied to the Center for Cyber Safety and Education Scholarship Program. The remaining funds will be made available for the Chapter to offer their own scholarship(s) to secondary or high school students in their local community. The minimum scholarship amount awarded to an individual student is US$250.
The Challenge fundraising period runs from November 1, 2016 until July 31, 2017, and the scholarship awards application period is from September 1 – October 31. Awards will be presented to winning recipients in December, 2017.
The funds you raise will help high school students on their path to becoming cybersecurity professionals. Through your fundraising efforts you will also help your community understand the importance of a safer cyber world and of assisting the next generation of cyber professionals.
