TruShield Security Solutions, Inc., a global cyber security company providing continuous security monitoring solutions, has announced a new annual scholarship. The TruShield Cybersecurity Scholarship is designed to recognize Northern Virginia high-school and college student who have an interest in, are studying and are pursuing a future in the cybersecurity industry.
“We are delighted to announce this scholarship, which reflects the importance of cybersecurity education,” says Adley Francois, co-founder of TruShield.
There are two essay-writing contests, one for college-level students and another for high-school students, which are both based on cybersecurity and allow the students to put a creative spin on each topic.
Three winners will be chosen from each group, with first-prize being $500 to go towards college tuition and expenses. Second-prize is a Kindle Fire HD, and third prize is a $50 Amazon gift card. All winning essays will also be posted on TruShield’s website.
All students who attend a public, private, or charter school or who are home schooled in the counties of Loudoun, Prince William, Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria City are eligible for consideration. The completed application and essay must be received by TruShield no later than May 15, 2016. While there is no separate application required for the scholarship, applicants should highlight their current STEM activities in a brief bio about themselves.
