KnowBe4 to Offer $10,000 Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship, Summer 2020 Internship

The organization partners with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education to bolster women in cybersecurity.

TAMPA BAY, FLA. (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 16, 2019 KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has partnered with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education to launch a Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship.

The KnowBe4 Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship will offer $10,000 to be applied to tuition, fees and books for the recipient. A three-month paid internship with KnowBe4, located in Clearwater, FL, to take place May 19 – August 7, 2020 is also part of the scholarship program. The application period will close on November 25, 2019 at 12:00 noon EST.

“Given the shortage of women in cybersecurity, it’s important to support goodwill initiatives, such as this new scholarship program, that are focused on bringing more women into this field,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Partnering with the Center for Cyber Safety and Education was a perfect match for us because they’re already doing great work in the community to foster a security culture with more women included as evidenced by their Women’s Scholarship program.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with KnowBe4 to not only provide a significant college scholarship, but to assure that the winner will receive practical real-life experience with the paid summer internship,” said Patrick Craven, director, the Center for Cyber Safety and Education. “Both are vital to keep up with the fast paced and changing world of cybersecurity. This opportunity is going to be life-changing for this person.”
