  Federal Cyber Service: Scholarship for Service

**************************************************

The Federal Cyber Service: Scholarship for Service (SFS)  program, 
sponsored by the National Science Foundation (www.nsf.gov), seeks to 
increase the number of qualified students entering the fields of 
information assurance and computer security and to increase the capacity 
of the United States higher education enterprise to continue to produce 
professionals in these fields to meet the needs of our increasingly 
technological society. The SFS program is composed of two tracks:

* The Scholarship Track provides funding to colleges and universities to 
  award scholarships to students in the information assurance and 
  computer security fields.  Scholarship recipients shall pursue 
  academic programs in information assurance for the final two years of 
  undergraduate study, or for two years of master's-level study, or for 
  the final two years of Ph.D.-level study.  These students will 
  participate as a cohort during their two years of study and 
  activities, including a summer internship in the Federal Government. A 
  limited number of students may be placed in National Laboratories and 
  Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs). The 
  recipients of the scholarships will become part of the Federal Cyber 
  Service of Information Technology Specialists whose responsibility is 
  to ensure the protection of the United States Government's information 
  infrastructure. Upon graduation, after their two-year scholarships, 
  recipients will be required to work for two years in the Federal 
  Government. A limited number of students may be placed in National 
  Laboratories and Federally Funded Research and Development Centers 
  (FFRDCs). This number shall be set by the program office each year.

* The Capacity Building Track provides funds to colleges and 
  universities to improve the quality and increase the production of 
  information assurance and computer security professionals. 
  Professional development of information assurance faculty and 
  development of academic programs can be funded under this track.
