Purdue has been awarded 10 of the scholarships, to start in the fall. Another 10 are for the fall of 2003.Each fellowship will cover full tuition and fees for 2 years while the recipient pursues a MS degree with specialization in security. The fellowship also covers lodging and pays a monthly stipend, plus a summer internship. In return, the recipient is expected to make satisfactory progress towards the degree, emphasizing courses related to information security (a faculty member will be the advisor for this). Upon graduation, the student will be required to take a job with the Federal government for as many years as the student received the scholarship.
