The UMSA Foundation launched its scholarship program in support of our continued efforts in interdisciplinary collaboration and education. Just as we are committed to supporting organizations and professionals in security and risk-related industries, so are we committed to providing support in education. Through this scholarship program, we aim to provide financial assistance as a way to build the leaders of our future and sustain our industries.
The scholarship program offers scholarships for undergraduate, graduate or continuing education programs in the any of the following fields (applicants can apply in more than one field): business continuity and disaster recovery; cybersecurity; governance, risk and compliance; or physical security. Applicants must be a resident of Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota or Wisconsin. UMSA board members, UMSA Foundation and/or UMSA committee members, and immediate family of these individuals (where immediate family is defined as spouse or child) are not eligible.
