Hacker Summer Camp Student Scholarship Application - 2020
We (The Diana Initiative, WomenHackerz, WoSec) are collecting Hacker Summer Camp Student Scholarship Applications for 2020.
This year we are trying to send 10 students to all of Hacker Summer Camp (BlackHat, BSidesLV, Narwhal.be, Diana Initiative, Queercon, Def Con). Information Security is a constantly changing and evolving field. One of the best ways for us as a community to support those up-and-coming into our industry is to encourage students to attend InfoSec conferences. Some students need financial help to make this happen, which is why we started the scholarship.
We will award 10 recipients. We will not be able to award everyone a scholarship and will inform everyone by email after the deadline (May 30) if you have been accepted or not.
Donations for 2020 Student Scholarships will close on 30 May 2020 so that students have enough time to book travel.
Please use the form below to apply for a scholarship.
