CrowdStrike Accepting NextGen 2022-23 Scholarship Applications

By Uloop Staff on April 12, 2022

CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced the application period for its 2022-23 NextGen Scholarship Program is now open for submissions, according to a recent press release. This year, up to eight (8) scholarships of $10,000 will be awarded to select undergraduate and graduate students studying cybersecurity or artificial intelligence (AI). NextGen Scholarship applicants will also be included in the candidate pool for CrowdStrike internships, giving aspiring students both greater access to world-class education and marketable, real-world experience in one of today’s most critical and fastest-growing industries.

CrowdStrike established the scholarship program in 2017 to nurture and develop the next generation of talent and research in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI). To date, CrowdStrike has awarded more than $165,000 in scholarships to 24 of the top students in the U.S. and Canada.

Applicants for the 2022-23 academic year must be current undergraduates, graduate students or high school seniors who will be enrolled full-time at a college/university in the United States or Canada in the fall of 2022, majoring in cybersecurity or AI and achieving a minimum 3.30 GPA. Recipients will be evaluated based on academic achievement, essay content, expressed career interest and work/internship/volunteer experience in cybersecurity, AI or related fields.

“Cybersecurity is a field becoming more and more important every year, especially as our lives become increasingly digital. In the news, I constantly hear about data breaches, ransomware attacks, and numerous other cybersecurity threats,” said Aneesh Boreda, a 2021-22 NextGen Scholarship award recipient who is studying computer and information sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. “By pursuing a career in utilizing artificial intelligence to build powerful security tools to prevent these threats, I can help develop the next generation of algorithms used in the arms race between cyberattackers and security companies.”

The scholarship program is administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. (ISTS), an independent company that specializes in managing sponsored educational assistance programs. ISTS hosts the online application process, responds to applicant inquiries and performs preliminary ranking for the selection process.
