MSU and EMCC partner in cybersecurity
Mississippi State University and East Mississippi Community College are working together to prepare students for public service careers in cybersecurity. MSU will receive $3.11 million through a national science foundation grant to continue the university’s role in the Cybercorps scholarship for service program.
The program prepares highly-qualified cybersecurity professionals for entry into the government workforce. Scholars must be U.S. citizens eligible for federal service, and they must serve the government one year, for every year of scholarship, after graduation.
