The Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP)

IASP logoPLEASE NOTE: The DoD is not currently funding the Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP).   The description below is from a past program and is for information only.  If and when the program is renewed, we will post that information here.


Program Description 

Information assurance (security) is considered so important to our national defense that a formal Department of Defense (DoD) Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP) was established by the National Defense Authorization Act for 2001 (Public Law 106-398). The purpose of the program is to promote the education, recruitment, and retention of rising junior and senior undergraduate and graduate/doctoral students in information assurance studies and of students seeking graduate certificates in information assurance disciplines.

The DoD is seeking rising junior and senior (third and fourth year) undergraduate and graduate/doctoral students for concentrated studies in information assurance. Students selected for the program will receive full scholarships and will be provided a stipend to cover room and board expenses: undergraduate students will receive a stipend of $17,000, and graduate (master’s and PhD) students will receive a stipend of $22,000 per academic year. This requires the student to agree to serve one year of service to the DoD, upon graduation, for each year of scholarship received, in addition to the internship identified below. An opportunity also exists for scholarship payback through military service. Individuals choosing to enlist or accept a commission to serve on active duty in one of the Military Services shall incur a service obligation of a minimum of 4 years on active duty in that Service upon graduation. The Military Services may establish a service obligation longer than 4 years, depending on the occupational specialty and type of enlistment or commissioning program selected.

Internships

During breaks in their academic studies, Information Assurance Scholars will receive progressive, hands-on experience in information security internships. In return, scholars must agree to some restrictions and obligations regarding curriculum, GPA, and pre- and post-program employment. If all conditions are met, Information Assurance Scholars will receive full-time conditional/permanent positions in Components of the DoD upon program completion.
