The Cyber Security Dean’s Scholarship

It is no secret that higher education can be expensive, especially in the United States. While there are hundreds and thousands of students each year who wish to pursue higher education, they are often put off due to the lack of finances to pay for tuition. Scholarships are a valuable step for candidates who know where they want to study but lack on the financial front.

EC-Council University’s Cyber Security Dean’s scholarship has been developed to reward students who are academically dedicated and involved in their educational experience.

From incoming new students to ongoing graduate degree students, financial assistance is required by many to fulfill their dream. This is why this scholarship is extended to both current undergraduate and graduate students as well as to new students.

How much financial assistance is extended under this scholarship?

Applicants can enjoy the benefits of this scholarship through the program of study. The scholarship amount covers up to 10 percent of the tuition of the selected applicant.
