    The recent designation of The Citadel as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security, has led to it’s first Cadet being selected to receive the Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship, and an internship with the Dept. of Defense Space and Naval Warfare Center (SPAWAR). “This excellent scholarship and career opportunity is one of the benefits of The Citadel’s National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education. Only students who have demonstrated potential for academic success from designated colleges and universities can apply,” said Professor Shankar Banik, head of The Citadel’s NSA/DHS CAE cyber defense education program.

    This designation seems key for both civilian and military application for a solid IA education. DS chose his NROTC schools after cross-referencing the units with the designated schools.

    Kudo to the Citadel for opening up this much needed pathway.
