Students and Educators,
the Deadline has Passed to Receive a Scholarship to Attend the WiCyS 2019 Annual Conference


Notification of Scholarships/Grants: December 1, 2018

Student Registration (with Scholarship): Dec. 1, 2018 - Jan. 1, 2019

Faculty Registration (with Grant): Dec. 1, 2018 - Jan. 31, 2019

Each year, WiCyS enables 500 students at all levels to receive a scholarship to attend the Annual Conference. The scholarship provides two nights' (shared) lodging and conference meals at no charge - all thanks to the generosity of WiCyS 2019 sponsors! 

And, in recognition of the valuable contribution of educators to the advancement of women in cybersecurity, a limited number of accommodation grants (two nights shared lodging) are also awarded to faculty.

Due to space limitations, WiCyS 2019 implements controlled registration.  We are limited to 1,000+ attendees at the 2019 conference.   To ensure success of the conference, we control registration to be approximately 50% students, 25% educators and researchers, and 25% industry professionals.  The educators/researchers/professionals are critical for the success of the job/graduate school fair.  This is why we cannot accept every student who wants to attend. 

There are four ways for a student to attend:

  • Receive a scholarship to attend (the deadline was November 1, 2018)

  • Be part of a school's sponsored contingent (sponsorships available until sold out)

  • Submit a proposal and have it accepted for a talk, panel, birds of a feather, or student poster (the deadline for Call for Participation (CFP) has passed. Applications for the student poster competition opens December 1, 2018).

  • Be the WiCyS Student Chapter leader selected to attend (each chapter can register one student)

We encourage you to pursue all these options. 

Now that WiCyS has grown to an organization, we require scholarship applicants to be members of the organization.  However, for the remainder of this year you can become a member at no charge. Scholarship applications included an automatic membership subscription with an option to decline.
