The Cybersecurity Talent Initiative recruits our nation’s next cadre of cybersecurity leaders to protect the digital infrastructure from global threats. The program offers recent graduates in cybersecurity-related fields a unique opportunity to jump-start their professional lives with access to cross-sector cyber roles and developmental support through leadership development seminars, mentorship, and training. Students spend two years gaining valuable public sector experience in a federal agency. As their service ends, participants will be invited to apply for select positions with some of the most innovative private sector companies in the world. Candidates are U.S. citizens currently enrolled at an accredited educational institution in an undergraduate or graduate cybersecurity-related degree program.
