Each semester Rose State College Cyber Security students benefit from scholarships, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Rose State College, designated as a Center for Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), continues to lead the way as “the first and only two-year institution in the United States to offer training in all areas of Cyber Security certification”, says Ken Dewey, Director of Networking and Cyber Security. Students interested in Cyber Security can possibly earn a degree for free as these scholarships are not gap funded but are awarded on top of other freely available financial aid making an education and earning a degree extremely affordable.

Consideration for the Rose State College Cyber Security Scholarship Program requires interested students to follow an application process and must meet specific criteria. This includes admission to the Cyber Security program, full-time enrollment at Rose State College, U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status of the United States, a 2.5 GPA and financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Students who enroll in the program have the option to either enter the workforce upon completion of the degree or take advantage of a unique opportunity through partnerships to enhance their careers by earning a Bachelor’s degree from OSU IT or a Master’s degree from Tulsa University.

Applications are still being accepted for the 2015 Summer session until Friday, June 5 and for the Fall semester the deadline is Monday, August 10.
