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. 

The Veteran Fellowship application is open until March 1, 2021 to attend the September 8-10, 2021 conference at the Gaylord Rockies, Denver, CO.
