fwd:cloudsec Student Scholarship is our way of granting students with a passion for cloud security an opportunity to attend fwd:cloudsec, network with our attendees & sponsors, and help boost their careers. We will be awarding a limited number of students with free tickets & a stipend to cover travel costs.
In order to be considered, each applicant must meet the following criteria:
Must be at least 18 years old at the time of the event
Must provide copy of verifiable proof of full-time academic status at an accredited college or university (an unofficial transcript would be enough)
Must provide copy of valid and current college/university ID card
A signed letter of recommendation from an instructor at your institution would be encouraged
Along with your proof of attendance, please provide answers to the following questions:
Name, school, and year in school
Why do you want to come to fwd:cloudsec?
What do you hope to learn?
Have you been to any other information security conferences? Which ones?
What career and/or degree are you pursuing? It doesn’t have to be tech related, and if you haven’t declared, "not sure" is just fine — but do let us know what type of technical/cybersecurity pursuits you enjoy.
What is a conference talk about Cybersecurity/Cloud that fascinated you? (don’t worry if you have not been able to catch any, check some of them out on youtube or elsewhere and let us know!)
Scholarship will be provided based on need
Interested students must submit all required material by Saturday, July 31, 2021 by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org
