NYU School of Law and NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering lead several scholarship programs designed to develop a new generation of cybersecurity leaders through interdisciplinary education. The three scholarship programs currently available for NYU School of Law students find their home at the Center for Cybersecurity and include:
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the ASPIRE Scholarship aims to produce cybersecurity specialists who understand information-security issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. The ASPIRE program will provide a three-year full-tuition law school scholarship for students who are passionate about cyber and information security and dedicated to careers in state, local, or federal government.
The NYU Cyber Scholars Program is an interdisciplinary scholarship program for students passionate about cybersecurity. Students who are selected for this scholarship will join a cohort of peers from across the University as they develop a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity issues that integrates technical and non-technical disciplines.
The Latham & Watkins Award in Technology and Law seeks to train a new generation of technology lawyers who are not only equipped to analyze the most complex technology law and policy issues, but also students who have mastered the technical understandings of the discipline. The student selected for this award must demonstrate a passion for technology and cybersecurity law and an interest in the interdisciplinary aspects of the subject.
