This project seeks to establish a new CyberCorps®: Scholarship for Service (SFS) program at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T) to prepare highly-qualified Cybersecurity professionals for entry into the government workforce. The proposed CyberCorps®: SFS program is called Missouri Advanced Security Training, Education and Research (MASTER). The project will produce 16 MS and PhD graduates in the field of cybersecurity to serve the nation. It will increase the number of minorities and women in cybersecurity professionals and workforce. It will provide outreach and disseminate research findings to broader communities such as high schools, community colleges, HBCU partner universities, and academic communities in the field of cybersecurity.
