The US Department of Defense has launched a project offering professional development opportunities to US Navy cybersecurity personnel.

Under the Cyber Scholarship Retention Program, qualified navy employees can complete a degree in exchange for vital cyber services across the DoD.

The initiative will fund advanced education for individuals currently in cyber-related roles or in preparation requiring advanced knowledge in broad academic disciplines focusing on cybersecurity.
