Scholarship Sponsorship

The Need for Cybersecurity Professionals is Growing

and It’s Time to Take Action

The Global Information Security Workforce Study found that by 2022 there will be a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers and that only 11% of women are employed in the cybersecurity profession despite higher levels of education.

Because of the expected workforce gap, the Center for Cyber Security and Education is expanding its scholarship program. The Center in collaboration with (ISC)² is offering forward thinking companies the opportunity to be proactive and help secure our future by sponsoring scholarships to train tomorrow’s cybersecurity professionals. All scholarships must have a focus on cybersecurity, information security, or related fields.

Sponsor Benefits:

  • Fulfill corporate social responsibility goals.
  • Increase corporate brand awareness among your current and future clients.
  • Increase corporate brand awareness for students entering the field.
  • Recruit potential employees.
  • Help fill the current and future demand for cybersecurity professionals.
  • Eliminate personnel costs incurred by running your own scholarship program.
  • The Center will administer your entire scholarship program from application design to award disbursement.
