Seeking Qualified Student Applicants
Graduate Studies in Cyber Intelligence Scholarship Program
The Texas A&M University-Kingsville “Graduate Studies in Cyber Intelligence” scholarship program seeks qualified students to apply for financial support for their graduate studies focusing on cyber intelligence.
This project supports efforts to improve the supply of skilled cyber security experts who can help safeguard and secure information systems by providing the skills needed by next-generation threat detection technology developers. This project will attract and support five students each year into the Masters of Science program, and support opportunities for faculty and student opportunities to interact with government and industry cyber security professionals.
- Increase the number of local and domestic graduate students pursuing a Master of Science (MS) in computer science (CS) with an emphasis on cyber intelligence and cybersecurity.
- Provide opportunities for students completing the recently established DHS sponsored Minor in Cyber Intelligence program to continue their studies at the graduate level.
- Attract and train marginalized/underrepresented students and industry professionals, particularly Hispanics and females in the areas of DHS related operations.
- Partner with DHS Centers of Excellence, DHS related agencies, National Labs, and commercial entities to provide students with experiential learning/internship opportunities to make them Cyber Intelligence workforce ready.
- Promote faculty development through Cyber Intelligence research projects.
This project builds on the success of a DHS funded minor program in Cyber Intelligence that was recently established at TAMUK. This program will provide opportunities for undergraduate students to pursue and complete a Computer Science degree while specializing in a Cyber Intelligence or Cyber Security related topic and to continue their studies at the graduate level with a focus in Cyber Intelligence.
