Description:

One In Tech, an ISACA Foundation, issues academic scholarships provide funding and career-building resources for students pursuing cyber-related degrees.  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.

Volunteers have the opportunity to greatly impact a student’s education and career trajectory. The application review is scheduled for 17 Oct-21 Nov 2022 (two rounds of judging: 17 Oct – 31 Oct and 31 Oct – 21 Nov.). You must complete all assignments across both review periods to claim CPEs.

 

Anticipated Outcomes:

  • All judges must maintain confidentiality of the applicant information and documentation provided. Judges should approach all application review with a fair and unbiased perspective.
  • Volunteers can expect to be assigned approximately 15-25 nominations (3 pages long) for each of the two review periods. (Assignment totals will vary based on the number of applications received and volunteers committed.)
  • Should a concern about a potential conflict of interest arise, a judge may recuse him/her/themself from scoring a specific application.
  • Judges are expected to score all assigned applications by the assigned deadline (round 1: 31 Oct 2022, round 2: 21 Nov 2022).
  • Provide feedback to One In Tech staff on experience navigating the judging process to inform future scholarship program enhancements
