AZSecure Cybersecurity Fellowship Program

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the AZSecure Cybersecurity Fellowship Program offers full scholarships to qualified students in exchange for government service. The program is intended primarily for Masters MIS students, who receive two years of full funding. In exchange for the funding, the students serve a qualifying, paid summer internship and also commit to working in government service in a qualified agency for two years following graduation. A limited number of fellowships may also be available for undergraduates (up to 2 years funding) and a very limited number may be available to Ph.D. students (up to 3 years of funding). The program recruits heavily from within the state of Arizona; a limited number of scholarships may also be available for out-of-state students. Through coursework in the University of Arizona's Management Information Systems (MIS); electives in the MIS, Computer Science (CS), and/or Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) departments; and our NSA-recognized Enterprise Security Certificate, Fellowship students emerge with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the cyber security workforce.  

In addition to receiving a strong information security education, SFS students also participate in and benefit from:
Independent study research experiences with faculty members, resulting in a Master's Thesis.
Extra-curricular activities and events with their cohort.
A virtual Career Fair, a real-world Career Fair (usually held in the DC area), and placement support while searching for a summer internship and post-graduation position.
