NSF is seeking applications for the Federal Cyber Service: Scholarship
for Service program. The program seeks to increase the number of
students entering the fields of information assurance and computer
security and enhance capacity to produce such students and
professionals. The program is composed of two tracks. The first, a
Scholarship Track, provides funding for students completing the final
two years of undergraduate, two years of master’s level, or the final
two years of Ph.D.-level study in the relevant fields. Upon graduation,
awardees are required to serve two years in the federal government. The
Capacity Building Track provides funds to institutions to improve
quality and increase production of such professionals in these key
areas. $11.3 million is available for FY 09; 6-8 Scholarship Track
awards and 7-9 Capacity Building awards will be granted. Applications
are due February 2, 2010.
