New Haven, Connecticut (February 1, 2019) – Yale University is delighted to announce the availability of competitive full and partial scholarships for highly qualified cybersecurity professionals who wish to participate in the 2019 Yale Cyber Leadership Forum but do not have the financial resources to do so. The third annual Forum will take place February 28 to March 2, in New Haven, Connecticut.
Scholarships offset tuition and are made possible through generous outside sponsorship. Transportation to New Haven and accommodations are not covered.
Applications for scholarship funding will be accepted until noon (Eastern Standard Time) on February 7. Scholarship decisions will be announced the following day, on February 8.
Scholarships are primarily for professionals working in government, the nonprofit sector, and academia for whom the already reduced tuition rate of $1,995 would be a hardship. Applicants who own or work in start-ups or very small businesses may also be considered.
To apply, you must meet the eligibility criteria and submit a complete application online that includes a:
- Personal statement describing your work experience, the contribution you make to your company or organization, and what you hope to gain by attending the Yale Cyber Leadership Forum
- Brief statement of financial need
- CV or resume, to include a list of three (3) references that have worked with you as a supervisor or colleague, and whom the Forum may contact in reference to your application
About the Forum
The Forum was created in 2017 to convene leaders in law, technology, policy, business, and academia to drive conversations around critical challenges in cybersecurity and to bridge the divide between compartmentalized areas of expertise. The class is kept small by design in order to maximize meaningful discussion and debate among participants and speakers. The Forum director is Oona A. Hathaway, Gerard C. and Bernice Latrobe Smith Professor of International Law and founder and director of the Center for Global Legal Challenges at Yale Law School.
