After many years of being committed to education and information sharing we decided we wanted to do more to help undergraduate, graduate and continuing education professionals in obtaining their degrees. So,in late 2017, we launched our first scholarship program.
We received a generous number of talented applicants and after a tedious review and interviewing process, our 12 scholarship recipients were selected. This past May, we had the privilege of honoring these 12 scholarship recipients during the second day of Secure360 Twin Cities.
To be eligible for the UMSA scholarship, the applicant must be a member or a partner, or the spouse/partner/child of a member in one of our member organizations. Our member organizations are:
- MN State IT Center of Excellence
If the applicant was not affiliated with a member organization, they were able to request a member of an UMSA member organization to sponsor their application.
Applicants must be enrolled in a program in one of the following areas:
- Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
- Governance, Risk and Compliance
- Physical Security
We want to say one final congratulations to our 2018 scholarship recipients! Best of luck in your security career path!
Planning for the 2019 scholarship program is currently underway. Be sure to check out our scholarship webpage to stay up to date on the latest!
