Today’s cybersecurity students are tomorrow’s digital leaders. Join the exclusive ranks of cyber defenders who safeguard our nation’s digital infrastructure from global threats. A selective cross-sector opportunity for students in cybersecurity-related fields, the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative jumpstarts careers by providing both public and private sector work experience and offers opportunities for student loan assistance.


The Cybersecurity Talent Initiative is the first-of-its-kind public-private partnership aimed at recruiting and training a world-class cybersecurity workforce. The program is a selective opportunity for students in cybersecurity-related fields to gain vital public and private sector work experience and even receive up to $75,000 in student loan assistance.


Participants selected for the program will be guaranteed a two-year placement at a federal agency with cybersecurity needs. Before the end of their federal service, participants will be invited to apply for full-time positions with the program’s private sector partners. Participants hired by these companies will also receive student loan assistance.


By working for some of the most important federal organizations and cutting-edge private sector companies, participants develop the skills and knowledge needed to protect our country’s digital infrastructure and tackle global cybersecurity threats.
