Nov. 7, 2019 — Glenn Dietrich, a professor of information systems and cybersecurity in UTSA’s College of Business, has been awarded $771,220 from the U.S. Department of Defense to fund three cybersecurity scholarship programs within the college.
The first program will provide six scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students who are studying cybersecurity at UTSA.
Recipients will receive tuition, fees, a book allowance, a laptop computer, a trip to a security conference and a stipend. Following completion of their degree, students are required to work for a Department of Defense agency one year for every year that they receive the scholarship award.
Additional funding has been set aside to provide tuition, fees, book allowance and a laptop for members of any reserve or National Guard component who enroll in UTSA’s cybersecurity programs.
Finally, the grant will continue programming developed by Dietrich to train wounded warriors in cybersecurity and project management.
“We have been working with the Marines at Camp Pendleton and Wounded Warriors personnel at Fort Sam Houston,” said Dietrich [pictured, at left]. “We conduct classes in cybersecurity and project management. This grant will allow us to continue this program and possibly expand to other bases as well.”
In the past three years the college has received over $2 million in funding from the Department of Defense.
“The work that myself and project coordinator C.J. Jaquez are doing is good for the reputation of UTSA,” said Dietrich.
