Photo Release -- Northrop Grumman Foundation Awards Scholarships To CyberPatriot V Winners

Stocks in this article: NOC

"These students continue to impress us with their skills and innovation throughout the CyberPatriot competition, which grows in complexity and size each year," said Diane Miller, Northrop Grumman program director, CyberPatriot, who presented the scholarship check. "I'm proud that CyberPatriot continues to challenge the competitors, and they continue to demonstrate their computer skills, leadership, teamwork, communication and critical thinking abilities to meet the challenge year after year."

In its third year as the presenting sponsor, the Northrop Grumman Foundation and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) have invested time, talent and resources to assist in coaching teams and mentoring students. In addition to the foundation's generous support, Northrop Grumman 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.

This is the fifth year of AFA's CyberPatriot competition, which included more than 1,200 teams representing all 50 states, U.S. Department of Defense Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific, and Canada. This year's competition represents a 21 percent increase in registered teams over last year. The competition began in October 2012 and included three virtual competition rounds over three months to qualify for the in-person final competition round. 

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.
