NSF Provides Scholarships to Develop Cybersecurity Experts

The National Science Foundation recently announced $29 million in new awards for the CyberCorps Scholarship for Service program. The program supports institutions of higher education in establishing or continuing scholarship programs to recruit and train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to meet the needs of federal, state, local and tribal governments’ cybersecurity missions. This includes educational opportunities for graduate students. The next solicitation of award proposals is expected in April 2023 with submission deadline in July 2023. Congress allocated $69 million for the NSF program in Fiscal Year 2023, an increase of 9.5 percent from Fiscal Year 2022.
