The Department of Defense's (DoD) Cyber Security Scholarship Program (CySP) is open to Augusta University students enrolled in the 3rd or 4th year of undergraduate education, and current or prospective students in AU's Masters program. The purpose of the program is to increase the number of qualified students entering the fields of information assurance, information technology, and cybersecurity to meet the DoD's increasing dependence on cybersecurity for war fighting and the security of its information infrastructure.
Since 2017, Augusta University has received over $1 million in scholarship funding from the Department of Defense. Seventeen students have received this prestigious scholarship, including four multi-year recipients.
