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