Civilian Master's Degree Scholarship - STEM and MONARCH Programs


The Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Information Systems Security Studies and Research (CISR) is ready to lead you on the start of your new career in the STEM or MONARCH program. The "Scholarship for Service (SFS)" program DOES NOT entail enrollment in the Military. Our students receive their Master's Degree and move on to CIVILIAN government jobs in such organizations as the CIA, FBI, NSA, and others.

NPS's Center for Information Security Studies and Research (CISR) is one of the world's foremost centers for information security education and research and has been designated as a National Center of Excellence for Information Assurance in Education and Research.
