Information Security is a constantly changing and evolving field. One of the best ways for us as a community to support those up-and-coming into our industry is to encourage students to attend InfoSec conferences, like The Diana Initiative. So, we are offering Student Scholarships for our 2019 event. The number of Scholarships awarded will depend on donations received from the community.
For our first year, we’ve set a goal to enable 3 students to attend The Diana Initiative.
So far, we’ve received [$xxx] in donations, which will cover [#] Student Scholarships.
Questions regarding our Student Scholarships can be directed to [email@example.com].
1) An entry badge for The Diana Initiative 2019
2) Hotel accommodations (arranged by TDI) for 4 nights
Scholarships DO NOT include travel to/from Las Vegas, NV; meals; or any additional funds or benefits.
Scholarships are available to all students, regardless of race, gender, orientation, or current education program.
In order to qualify for a Student Scholarship to The Diana Initiative, applicants must be a student (high school, college, university, or other certificate program) with an interest in Information Security as a career. 2019 high school graduates should be planning to attend post-secondary education at some point within the remainder of 2019.
Applicants under 18 years old, if selected to receive a Scholarship, will be required to provide their legal guardians’ contact information, as the guardian will be required to agree to all the conditions. In addition, the guardian will need to accompany and be held responsible for the under 18 Scholarship winner. The guardian will receive an entry ticket to our conference, and will share a hotel room with the winner.
To apply for a Scholarship, please [complete this form] with honest and thorough answers to our questions. Applications must be received no later than 31 May 2019. Scholarship winners will be notified by email beginning mid-June.
We can’t make these Scholarships happen without your help. If you would like to donate toward enabling a deserving student to attend The Diana Initiative, please complete the donation form below. Custom amounts are welcomed, however we ask for at least $100.
For every $900 we receive, another student will have their hotel room covered and get to experience The Diana Initiative, learn to solder, connect with mentors in the InfoSec community, take part in a Capture the Flag competition, and possibly find their niche in this field.
Donations for 2019 Student Scholarships will close on 30 June 2019.
