The Hampton Department
Computer Science has just received a renewal grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the CyberCorps:
for Service program in the amount of $3.98 Million for the next five years.
“Congratulations the Computer to Science
department for successfully renewing this distinguished scholarship that will empower many students to study and excel in areas such as cybersecurity and other STEM fields,” said Hampton University President, Dr. William R. Harvey.
With this renewal, there is one big change to the
program. In the past, this scholarship was intended for rising senior Computer Science undergraduate students and Master of Science
in Information (MS in
students, but going forward, this scholarship will include rising juniors. “We made some adjustments so that we could include students who can start their junior year. So students can complete their junior and senior years with us or they complete senior and two-year masters or just two-year master’s degree,” said
Denecke, Professor for the Hampton University Department
Science, and Principal Investigator for this grant.
