Microsoft Cybersecurity Certification Scholarship Program

Program Overview

The demand for cybersecurity skills is proliferating as emerging tech introduces new security, compliance, and identity challenges. ISC2’s most recent study underscored that despite the continued growth in the cybersecurity workforce demand is still outpacing supply. 

Recognizing the increasing demand for cybersecurity professionals and the gap in women’s representation in cybersecurity, Women In Cloud, in collaboration with Microsoft, is initiating the Microsoft Cybersecurity Scholarship Program.
