Black Hat Student Scholarship Program

This year, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Black Hat Student Scholarship Program. As a way to introduce the next generation of security professionals to the Black Hat community, we will be awarding a limited number of complimentary Academic Passes for Black Hat USA 2014. Each pass allows full access to all Briefings and has a value of $895.

If you or someone you know has the skills to become a thought leader in the information security community, we hope you'll take a moment to review the simple application requirements and details here.

Black Hat USA provides an outstanding opportunity for students to further their learning, skill building, and networking. It's a chance to experience the bleeding edge of InfoSec research and to meet and interact with some of the most brilliant minds in the field today.

The deadline for all Student Scholarship applications is June 30, 2014 -- but the sooner we receive your application, the better.

Don't miss your chance. Apply now.
