DoD IASP Fellowship Program  

S&T Students interested in careers in IA are encouraged to apply for the IASP program which supports undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. study.  The purpose of the program is to increase the number of qualified students entering the field of Information Assurance (IA) to meet DoD’s increasing dependence on information technology for war fighting and the security of its information infrastructure.  The program places interns at various DoD facilities during the summer and provides employment in the IA field upon graduation.  For each year of fellowship money received, one year of work for the DoD is required.  (The DoD includes the National Security agency for purposes of this program).

Interested students should contact Professor Bruce McMillin for further information.  The IASP Web Site is at: http://www.defenselink.mil/cio-nii/sites/iasp2/
