The Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Cybersecurity and Cyber Operations (C3O) is ready to lead you on the start of your new career in the STEM or MONARCH program. The "Scholarship for Service (SFS)" program DOES NOT entail enrollment in the Military.

Awardees of the scholarship will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and the opportunity to participate in classified classes and research, participate in a summer internship to gain real world experience and upon graduation, start a paid civilian position as a cyber security professional in any of a number of government organizations for a minimum of two years.
