JumpStart into Cyber

Jumpstart into Cyber is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded program focused on engaging underrepresented student groups in cybersecurity education. NSF is working in partnership with SANS Institute (SANS) and Sinclair Community College to offer students an eight-week, two-step cybersecurity summer experience.

Cybersecurity Course and Certification

The top-performing 250 students in CyberStart will be selected to move on to SANS' Foundations SEC275 course, the same training taken by real-world cybersecurity professionals in industry and Government. On completion of the course, students will be prepared to test for the GIAC Foundational Cybersecurity Technologies (GFACT). Students selected for STEP 2 should plan to spend an additional 20 hours per week for six weeks (June 20-July 30) to complete the course and certification. More information will be provided about STEP 2 upon selection. A $20.00 registration fee will be required.
