Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship Program
Sponsored by the ExaGals
Calling all college women! Are you passionate about pursuing an education and career in cybersecurity?
Scholarship and internship opportunity
As the leader in Next-gen SIEM and XDR, Exabeam is reinventing the way security teams use analytics and automation to solve Threat Detection, Investigation, and Response (TDIR), from common security threats to the most critical that are difficult to identify.
This year, the Exabeam women’s group, ExaGals, is sponsoring the annual Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship Program and we are looking for women studying cybersecurity, computer science, or a related field who want to explore a career in cybersecurity.
Bringing unique perspectives
For the first time ever, the ExaGals are proud to sponsor the 2022 Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship. The ExaGals focus on supporting and empowering the women of Exabeam, as well as women in the technology community at large, with career development, education, and personal growth opportunities. As the cybersecurity landscape evolves and cyber threats become more complex and difficult to detect, we’re looking to support the advancement and recruitment of women in cybersecurity to bring unique perspectives.
The fourth-annual Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship Program is an initiative designed to support the next generation of women looking to pursue an education and career in the cybersecurity field. The scholarship program will award the first-place winner with a paid summer 2023 internship in the department of their choice in addition to $10,000. The runner-up will receive a $5,000 scholarship.
