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.
As of the announcement of the 2018 scholarship award, 11 students from the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences have been awarded this prestigious scholarship. Augusta University students received nearly 20% of the scholarships awarded for the 2018 application period.

The purpose of the National Science Foundation's CyberCorps: Scholarship for Service (SFS) program is to increase the number of qualified students entering government cybersecurity positions. Students attending Augusta University or Augusta Technical College with plans to transfer to Augusta University are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Students awarded scholarship funds are expected to secure a cybersecurity position at a federal, state, local, or tribal agency with special approval. Awardees must commit to work one year for every year of scholarship assistance (e.g. two years of scholarship funds = minimum of two years of service). Students will be assisted with job placement by the SFS Program Office & Augusta University Cyber Institute. Students are ultimately responsible for securing employment. Failure to do so will result in all scholarship funds converting into a loan that must be repaid. Successful applicants will be awarded starting the Fall 2018 semester and must be full-time students.
