Veterans Assistance Programs

Your Service, Our Gratitude

From discounted memberships to exclusive forums, Veteran Fellowship Awards, and opportunities to participate in the WiCyS Veterans’ Apprenticeship Programs, we have many ways to say to our members in the Veterans community, “Thank you for your service.”

Veterans’ Assistance Program



Our mission is to support our veteran community and grow the cybersecurity workforce by moving more female veterans into cybersecurity. Launched in 2019, our program provides deserving go-getters with:

  • Resources, opportunities, and mentors within the WiCyS network
  • Discounted WiCyS membership
  • WiCyS Veteran Scholarship opportunities
  • Exclusive community forum
  • Access to the directory of WiCyS veterans for external opportunities
  • Work with partners and sponsors for job placement

Veteran Fellowship Award

Original funding supported by Craig Newmark Philanthropies, this annual honor is given to selected female veterans who are either interested in cybersecurity careers or who are already working in the field. Recipients gain complimentary attendance to the WiCyS annual conference where they are able to meet with the greater community.
