Marymount Receives National Science Foundation Grant
In conjunction with The George Washington University, Marymount has been awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to continue funding full scholarships with stipends for undergraduate and graduate students studying computer security. This grant builds on previous ones that enabled Marymount to develop its Computer Security and Information Assurance graduate certificate program and begin providing scholarships for individuals studying this field.
Recent Marymount graduates of the program are currently working for the Department of Justice, General Accounting Office, National Security Agency, and the Institute for Defense Analyses. The new grant makes the scholarships available through 2010.
