Cybersecurity is an increasingly important field that is crucial to protect individuals, businesses, and entire countries from attacks.

Entering the cybersecurity field requires hard work and significant education, coming with many hurdles. Students from marginalized communities face even more barriers when pursuing their academic and professional dreams, making it easy to get discouraged and give up.

This scholarship seeks to support the next generation of cybersecurity experts so they can overcome the obstacles they face.

Any LGBTQIA+ undergraduate or graduate student who works and is self-supporting may apply for this scholarship if they’re pursuing cybersecurity. Applicants who have been ex-communicated from their communities, have experienced homelessness due to their identity, and/or are attempting to return to school are preferred.

To apply, tell us about your career goals, where you see yourself in the future, and how this scholarship fits with your aspirations.
