Computer Science Department, in collaboration with the
Institute of Information Assurance at IUP, is proud to announce the Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship Program for 2012.
DoD IA Scholarship Program Application Deadline: Tuesday, January 31, 2012
The IUP Center for Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education is pleased to offer current and prospective students the opportunity to apply for scholarships through the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Information Assurance Scholarship Program.
The Department of Defense is offering full scholarships for students, civilians, and non-active-duty military personnel who pursue fields of study related to information assurance. Students selected for the program will receive scholarships that include tuition, books, fees, and a stipend. This requires the student to agree to serve one year of service to DoD upon graduation for each year of scholarship received. During breaks in academic study, information assurance scholars will receive hands-on experience in information security internships. In return, scholars must agree to some restrictions and obligations regarding curriculum, GPA, and post-program employment. If all conditions are met, information assurance scholars will receive full-time conditional/permanent positions with the DoD upon program completion. The amount is $14,000 for undergraduate students.
If you are interested in applying for this opportunity, please contact Dr. Shumba at (724) 357-3166 (
firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications should not be submitted directly to the Department of Defense. Please submit your application to Dr. Shumba by January 31, 2012.
