Student Chapter Guidelines

We want our chapters to succeed. That’s why we outlined guidelines to help you and your peers make the most of your Student Chapter.

Gather together your school’s community of students in cybersecurity! Your efforts can help decrease the gender disparity in the field, while providing support, mentorship, training, networking opportunities and access to industry and academic leaders.

With WiCyS student chapters, you’ll undertake activities to promote recruitment, retention and advancement of women students in cybersecurity. At least one Chapter representative will be awarded a student scholarship to attend the WiCyS Annual Conference to share your Chapter’s experience. Through the annual WiCyS Chapter report, you’ll share information helpful to others about your activities.

Start your own WiCyS Student Chapter at your school or college!
