Hewlett-Packard is launching a new scholarship fund to support women studying the theory and practice of cybersecurity.

Announced amid the start of the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco this week, the Scholarship for Women Studying Information Security (SWSIS) program is a joint effort, supported by HP, the Applied Computer Security Associates (ACSA), and the Computer Research Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W).

The SWSIS fund will be granting up to $250,000 to academic institutions worldwide for the purpose of curating course content about the fundamentals of IT security.

There is no preset scholarship amount per student or university. Students can be eligible for scholarships worth up to $10,000 per year, with a ceiling of $20,000 total over a two-year period. Funds will be allocated to the ACSA over a four-year period.

Scholarship winners will also have the possibility for interning at HP, although the tech giant specified that it is “not a mandatory requirement.”

HP highlighted participation by the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
