Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is hosting a summer fellowship aimed at cyber security students who will be seniors in the Fall of 2016. The IT Lab: Summer Security Initiative (SSI) is a roughly six week program that will be taking place from June 19, 2016- July 30, 2016.
SSI is an opportunity for participants to engage in a unique environment that will prepare them for careers post-school. Interaction with some of the world’s most foremost information security experts will be a daily occurrence and a majority of them will be teaching the program’s daily classes. If all of this wasn’t enough to convince future seniors to apply, keep in mind that students who complete the SSI program will be eligible to receive a scholarship of at least 50% of tuition to CMU’s Heinz College to pursue a master’s degree.
