KnowBe4 partners with Center for Cyber Safety and Education to support members of the military, veterans and their spouses in their pursuit of education in cybersecurity
TAMPA BAY, Fla., June 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — KnowBe4 (NASDAQ: KNBE), the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has opened the application period for a new Military, Veteran and Spouse Cybersecurity Scholarship program.
The KnowBe4 Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship will offer $10,000 to be applied to tuition, fees, books, required electronics and up to $3,000 may be applied to on-campus housing. An (ISC)2 Certification Education Package that includes a certification exam voucher, a study course and other materials, practice exams and one year of membership dues paid is also part of this scholarship program. The application period will close on August 30, 2021.
“The members of our military, veterans and their spouses have already provided so much to others,” said Kelly Barrena, director of global talent brand and outreach, KnowBe4. “We believe that assisting them with their educational costs towards a future cybersecurity career is the least we could do to show our appreciation. Launching this new scholarship is just one of the continuous ways that KnowBe4 supports military, veterans and their spouses.”
“Serving in the military requires sacrifices from not only the member but their entire family,” said Patrick Craven, director, Center for Cyber Safety and Education. “This innovative scholarship can help not only a transiting veteran jumpstart their cybersecurity career, but recognizes the contribution the spouse of a service member makes to the cause and can advance their education aspirations as well.”
