Scholarship For Service (SFS) to study Cybersecurity at Brookdale

cybercorp grant

DO I QUALIFY FOR A CYBERSECURITY SCHOLARSHIP?

  1. Are you a Veteran?
  2. Do you have a bachelor’s degree?
  3. All of the above

If you selected A, B or C, consider applying for the Scholarship For Service (SFS) program – a very selective program that allows students to pursue studies in Cybersecurity.

So what do you get?

An opportunity to study Cybersecurity at Brookdale.

If selected to participate in the SFS program, you will receive the following support for two years at Brookdale:

  • Full Tuition and Fees: up to $9,049.20
  • Stipend: $25,000 (that not a typo!)
  • Allowance: $6,000 (up to $4,000 for SFS Job Fair and other travel, professional certs, etc.; up to $2,000 for books)

What’s the catch?

As they say, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. For every year of scholarship support you get, you have to commit to working at a Federal Agency in need of Cybersecurity talent. Notice the SFS Job Fair? We want 100% placement out of this program, so we work hard – with you – to place you in an appropriate job.

Sounds great! Why doesn’t everyone do it?

We’re looking for a student that is not only well-qualified academically, but also committed to this program. If you drop out or quit – you have to pay the money back. If you don’t meet your service commitment – you have to pay the money back. This is a big deal!

So how do I get started?
