Under the leadership of the Project PI, professor Waleed Farag, IUP, along with a selected group of national universities, has been awarded funding since 2018 from the Department of Defense (DoD) in support of the Cyber Scholarship Program (CySP).
This project has introduced a systematic program designed to effectively recruit qualified and high-achieving students who are enrolled in our cybersecurity program of study as candidates to the CySP. Selected candidates for this scholarship will receive
full support, including a generous annual stipend, a waiver for tuition and all fees, books, laptop, and other benefits. Please see below complete details in the announcement for the new 2020–21 application cycle.
If you are interested in pursuing this full-ride scholarship to support your study in cybersecurity and related fields, the Department of Defense is seeking scholarship applications from rising junior and senior (third- and fourth-year) undergraduate
and master/doctoral students for the 2020–21 academic year. Details about this new application cycle are given below.
