The scholarship is sponsored by Alta Associates.
It is a recruitment firm specializing in Information Security, IT Audit, Risk Management and Privacy.
Since 2003, Alta Associates has been organizing the Executive Women’s Forum on Information Security for leaders in information security, privacy and risk management.
The Information Networking Institute (INI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has the aim to educate and develop engineers through technical, interdisciplinary master’s degree programs in information networking, security and mobility.
These people are also interested in offering help and support to students with financial needs as the educational period is the most demanding and difficult for both students and parents.
The organization believes that together with the students, as the future leaders, they can shape the future so it emphasizes the importance of support provided to them.
The organization has decided to help students through scholarships and started awarding them in the fall 2007 and has awarded great amount of money up to now.
The aim of this scholarship is to support a student from a historically underrepresented population in the area of information networking and security, including women.
So as to be eligible for this scholarship, the applicant must meet all criteria.
The requirements for this amazing award are:
Admission to the INI’s MSISTM program or MSIN program,
An accumulated GPA of at least 3.25 prior to entering Carnegie Mellon as well as maintenance of a minimum 3.25 GPA while at the INI.
Furthermore, the applicant should not have an outstanding employment contract or obligation while attending Carnegie Mellon.
The applicant has to show an exemplary promise and demonstrate exceptional leadership skills.
How to Apply
The application process is not the same as with other scholarships.
INI fellowships are merit-based, meaning that students who have admission to the INI’s MSISTM program or MSIN program are eligible for this scholarship and will be awarded during the admissions application review process.
It is true that students may indicate that they are interested in and maybe in need of receiving a fellowship, there is no application process for this type of opportunity and the selected committee would determine who will get it.
