Since 2011, ACSA has provided scholarships to women studying for their Bachelors and Masters degrees in fields relating to information security.  These $5000 to $10,000 scholarships provide assistance to women at formative stages of their careers.  With the addition of HP’s multi-year financial commitment to this program starting with the 2014-15 academic year, ACSA was able to increase the number of scholarships, in turn helping to increase the number of women in the field. Read about our 16 2015-16 scholarship winners here and our 11 2014-15 scholarship winners here.

Starting in the 2014-15 academic year and continuing for the 2015-16 academic year, the Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W), an arm of the Computing Research Alliance, is joining the SWSIS program.  CRA-W will participate in SWSIS publicity and in selecting scholarship winners through their extensive network of faculty members in the field.
