CySP Scholarship Program

Students selected to participate in the program receive the full cost of tuition, books (from the institution and degree specific required book list, not books which are optional for the class), required fees (including health care), and a stipend to cover food and housing. Students can apply a 1 year scholarship with the potential for renewal.  This scholarship comes with a post-graduate obligation for the same number of years toward federal service. Students are required to complete an internship with the Department of Defense during the summer.  Must be a U.S. citizen to apply.
