NSA's Stokes Educational Scholarship Program

The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program
The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program is open to high school seniors planning to attend college and major in computer science or computer/electrical engineering. The scholarship program combines a scholarship with required summer work at the National Security Agency (NSA).

The scholarship covers college tuition and college-related fees. In addition, scholarship recipients work at NSA for 12 weeks during the summers in a job that is related to their study field. Students receive a salary year-round as well as work experience at a large government agency. After graduation, students will be required to work for the NSA for a year and one half.

To apply, students must have a grade point average of 3.0 or above and maintain their G.P.A. until graduation. A minimum SAT/College Board score of 1600 (1100 Critical Reading and Math, 500 in Writing) or ACT of 25 is also required.

The National Security Agency is a key member of the U.S. government's intelligence operations. The agency is responsible for security coding that protects classified national security information. What they do is important to both U.S. decision makers as well as the country's military leaders in protecting the nation.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in NOVEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $30,000.
