The ISACA Foundation (previously known as One In Tech) issues global academic scholarships to provide funding and career-building resources for students pursuing cyber-related degrees. This scholarship program was honored with a 2023 Power of Associations Gold Award from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) for our work bridging the cybersecurity workforce gap.

Volunteers will review all applications and score them based on established metrics. Learn more about the scholarships offered in this cycle.

Previous scholarship recipient Cristobal Farfan Maguina said, “This scholarship will open doors for underrepresented community members like me and is a special recognition of my professors, family, and the community’s collective effort to encourage me to conclude my studies.”
