KnowBe4 partners with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education to bolster women in cybersecurity for the fourth consecutive year
KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it is partnering with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education to launch a Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship for the fourth consecutive year.
The KnowBe4 Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship will offer $10,000 to be applied to tuition, fees, books and required electronics for the recipient. An (ISC)2 Certification Education Package that includes a certification exam voucher, a study course and other materials, practice exams and one year of membership dues paid is also part of this scholarship program. This is a one-time award and students may reapply each year in the future to be considered for another scholarship. Applicants will be scored in three categories: passion, merit and financial need. The application period is now open and will close on February 28, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
“KnowBe4 is thrilled to once again partner with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education for this incredible scholarship,” said Kelly Barrena, VP of global talent brand and outreach, KnowBe4. “Women are underrepresented in the cybersecurity workforce, therefore it is important to support and promote opportunities that diversify the field and encourage women who are pursuing related degrees and careers. KnowBe4 looks forward to selecting a deserving recipient.”
