Department of Defense
 Cyber Scholarship Program (CySP)

Description:

The DoD is seeking undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in concentrated studies in cybersecurity. Students selected for the program will receive full scholarships. This requires the student to agree to serve one year of service to the DoD, upon graduation, for each year or partial year of scholarship received, in addition to an internship during summers while being in the program. An opportunity also exists for scholarship payback through military service.  

At UT Dallas, we offer this program to students who plan to pursue an MS in Computer Science in Information Assurance (Cyber Security) concentration track and fulfill the requirements of our NSA endorsed Cyber Security Certificate program (that can be completed as part of MS in CS degree program). Undergraduate students (CS or SE or CE students) who are already in (or who will qualify to join) our BS+MS fast track program (for Fall 2020 start) will also be considered provided that they commit to pursue their MS in CS degree after they complete their undergraduate degree with the scholarship program.
