Northrop Grumman Foundation Furthers CyberPatriot Growth With Renewed Three-Year Commitment

"This commitment will allow AFA to expand the program to middle schools, which is a pivotal time when students are determining their interest in the STEM disciplines," said Diane Miller, Northrop Grumman program director, CyberPatriot. "This age group is operating in a cyber-enabled world so it's critical that we increase their awareness of cyber safety, cyber defenses and the life skills needed to succeed in this burgeoning career field. Our continued commitment will also ensure international expansion of CyberPatriot to cultivate young talent and build a global team of qualified cyber defenders."

In addition to the foundation's support, Northrop Grumman Corporation contributes employee volunteers, expertise and resources to CyberPatriot, as well as scholarship funds for the winning teams. The company also provides internships to a number of CyberPatriot competitors, as do other industry and government organizations. These internship opportunities serve both CyberPatriot participants and cybersecurity employers as the nation strives to fill the critical need for cyber professionals.

"The CyberPatriot program is helping to prepare college- and career-ready students with not just technical skills, but also with valuable experience in teamwork, leadership and critical thinking," said Bernie Skoch, CyberPatriot commissioner. "None of what we have done, none of the students we have reached, none of the difference we are making in attracting students to STEM would be possible without the generous support of the Northrop Grumman Foundation. Northrop Grumman's involvement is more than financial; it also provides our competitors with superb insights, technical expertise and other support. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with our presenting sponsor as we work together to improve STEM education in America."

Northrop Grumman is committed to supporting cybersecurity education, training and technology. In addition to CyberPatriot, the foundation supports other cyber STEM initiatives including the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) CyberScholars program.  The corporation supports the University of Maryland Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students program, leads the Cybersecurity Research Consortium, is partnered with the UMBC Research Park Corporation on the Cync incubator program, and operates its own Cyber Academy.
