Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, will fund scholarships for minority group students pursuing a master’s degree in cybersecurity at New York University. The NYU Tandon School of Engineering announced Wednesday that at the end of August it will award the first round of scholarships to broaden the pool talent in its new Cyber Fellows program. Five Bridgewater scholarships will be provided to the initial cohort of students, with 25 planned for the start of the academic year beginning in 2019.
