Associate’s Cyber Security Scholarship
EC Council University (ECCU) is proud to announce the funding of its Associate’s Cyber Security Scholarship. The cybersecurity scholarship is designed to provide continuing education tuition assistance to undergraduate students who have graduated from a U.S. college with an earned associate’s degree. The award will be a tuition scholarship of $2,000 to continue education in ECCU’s Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security program. This is a Bachelor’s completion program covering the 60 credit hours, from years 3 and 4 of the bachelor’s degree, where the earned associate’s degree’s 60 credits — covering years 1 and 2 from the awarding college — is built upon. The award will be dispersed on a prorated basis across the estimated academic terms/semesters of program attendance.
The applicant must have an earned associate’s degree from an accredited U.S. college. Application information and admission into ECCU’s bachelor’s online cybersecurity program will further be used in the qualifying process, which will be awarded on a merit basis until cybersecurity scholarship funds are exhausted. Evidence of academic merit may be used to rank qualified applicants.
The scholarship program applicant must meet all university admission requirements as delineated in the ECCU Catalog.

In order to maintain the Associate’s Cyber Security Scholarship from term to term, the recipient must meet ECCU’s “Criteria for Maintaining Continual Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)” (GPA, course completion rate, etc.) and course attendance/participation policies as delineated in the ECCU Catalog.
