The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (ASD (NII)) annually announces a Department of Defense Information Assurance (IA) Scholarship Program (IASP) grant and scholarship competition.
The program is designed to:
- Increase the number of new entrants to DoD who possess key Information Assurance (IA) and IT skill sets.
- Serve as a mechanism to build the nation’s IA infrastructure through grants to colleges and universities jointly designated by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Defense as Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education.
- Serve as a tool to develop and retain well-educated military and DoD civilian personnel who support the Department’s critical IT management and infrastructure protection functions.
