CMU’s Information Networking Institute is offering a full scholarship to US citizens who apply through the government’s Scholarship for Service program. Sounds interesting to me…only catch is working for 2 years with Dept of Homeland Security afterwards… but if you are considering a degree in computer network security seems like a win-win situation.
Why choose graduate school? With only a bachelor’s degree, sometimes recent grads feel limited by the paths they can take. The Scholarship for Service (SFS) program is an attractive option in information security for American engineering and computer science grads—a tuition-free way to broaden skills and open up amazing job opportunities. U.S. citizens who enter the INI’s master’s program in Information Security Technology and Management (MSISTM) may be eligible to participate in SFS. Admission is competitive, but those students who are accepted earn a huge reward. The federal government offers SFS scholars a full scholarship and stipend in exchange for a year-for-year commitment to work for the government after graduation

Thank you for posting this, David! The job options after graduation are great. We have alumni working for defense and the national laboratories doing some interesting work.
