DoD IA Scholarship Program



APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, January 30, 2015

(pending allocation of funds)

As a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE), Pace University is pleased to offer current and prospective students the opportunity to apply for scholarships through the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP).

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is offering full scholarships for students, civilians, and non-active-duty military personnel who pursue fields of study related to information assurance. Students selected for the program will receive scholarships that include tuition, books, fees, and a stipend.  This requires the student to agree to serve one year of service to the DoD, upon graduation, for each year of scholarship received. During breaks in academic study, Information Assurance Scholars will receive hands-on experience in information security internships. In return, scholars must agree to some restrictions and obligations regarding curriculum, GPA, and post-program employment. If all conditions are met, Information Assurance Scholars will receive full-time conditional/permanent positions with the DoD upon program completion.
