Sponsoring Student Scholarships
Through a series of online competitions, the talented student competitors from around the nation are being invited to attend a USCC Cyber Camp. This select group of future cyber warriors will be offered elite training and hands-on exercises throughout their weeklong camp experience. Many of these students will become expert cyber security professionals, protecting the private sector of the United States. Some will become our nation’s front-line defense and protect our country.

These students need your help to become the very best they can be. The camp will provide an exciting opportunity for them to learn from some of the nation’s top cyber professionals, compete with their peers and network with future employers.
