Cybersecurity Diversity Foundation, Western Governors University Offering Scholarships


The Cybersecurity Diversity Foundation (CDF) has teamed up with Western Governors University (WGU) on a scholarship to offer a pair of students two years’ worth of full tuition toward the university’s cybersecurity master’s program.

We’re especially excited about this scholarship opportunity here at MKACyber, in part because our CEO, Mischel Kwon, is a founding member of the CDF but also because of our general dedication to diversity in the cybersecurity industry and beyond.

Each scholarship carries a $12,000 value, paid out at a rate of $3,000 per six-month term over two years. Beyond this, WGU is waiving the $65 application fee for prospective students the use to promo-code “CYBER2017” on their application form.

If you’re interested, you can apply for admission, then you have to complete the scholarship application, submit transcripts of all prior college work, complete the student aid application, and be officially accepted for admittance to WGU.

WGU points out that the scholarship is for new WGU students only.

“Students are eligible to apply for this scholarship up to 60 days prior to their start date and up to 60 days after starting a degree program,” WGU stipulates. “Students starting more than 60 days after submitting a scholarship application will not be considered for the scholarship. WGU employees and their spouses are not eligible to receive this scholarship.”
