Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship Program



Thanks to all those who entered the 2020 Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship essay and video contest! The deadline is now closed.


Over 50 students across the country competed for the scholarships. Applicants were required to write an essay or produce a 5-minute video in response to one of the following questions:

  • How would you go about making U.S. elections safe?
  • How would you protect user privacy and security on social media platforms?
  • Do you think your generation is more or less secure than your parent’s generation, and why?

Winners were selected based on originality and creativity of their essays or videos (80%) and their grade point average (20%).

Our three winners, Bryan Alvarez, Zhandra Chen and Ishaan Raja, represent a diversity of approaches in their creative and passionate submissions addressing security threats on the topics they selected.
