CyberCorps®: Scholarship for Service (SFS) Program

Are you interested in cybersecurity degree programs? Are you looking for cybersecurity scholarships?

CyberCorps®: Scholarship for Service (SFS) is a unique program designed to recruit and train the next generation of information technology professionals, industrial control system cybersecurity professionals, and security managers to meet the needs of the cybersecurity mission for Federal, State, local, and tribal governments.

The program provides scholarships through qualified institutions of higher education to students who are enrolled in cybersecurity degree programs or cybersecurity -related fields, including artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and aerospace. Students identified by their institutions for SFS Scholarships must meet selection criteria based on prior academic performance, likelihood of success in obtaining the degree, and suitability for government employment. Upon graduation, scholarship recipients are required to work a period equal to the length of their scholarship in federal, state, local or tribal Government or in other approved organizations as cybersecurity professionals. Scholarships include tuition, stipend, professional allowance stipend (travel for job fair) and up to three years of support. To date, over five thousand students have received scholarships and committed to work for government organizations across the country.

The program is managed by the National Science Foundation (NSF), in collaboration with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in accordance with the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2014.
