Nunn School International Affairs and Modern Languages undergraduate Angelique Edwards and Regents’ Professor Seymour Goodman participated in the annual workshop of the Cyber Conflict Studies Association, June 8 - 9. The workshop was hosted by the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. Edwards is one of three Nunn School students just awarded full National Science Foundation (NSF) scholarships to study cybersecurity.
CyberCorps is open to students who are enrolled in the Computer Science, the Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Public Policy, or the International Affairs departments at Georgia Tech and who demonstrate strong interest in the field of cybersecurity. Scholarship recipients receive internship opportunities prior to graduation, professional development, and employment placement assistance. Upon graduation, recipients work in a position related to cybersecurity for a federal, state, local or tribal government organization in the United States for a period equal to the length of the scholarship.
