The Department of Defense (DoD) needs bright Americans to solve critical computer security problems. It created the Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP) to encourage American scholars interested in Information Assurance to consider working for the DoD.
IASP is a full ride scholarship. It pays for your tuition, student fees, text books, lab expenses, supplies and equipment.   Additionally, it pays an annual $12,000 stipend for undergraduate students or an annual $17,000 stipend for graduate students.
