School of Computing students, faculty attend job fair in Washington, D.C.

Three students and two faculty members from the School of Computing in the College of Engineering attended the CyberCorps Scholarship for Service (SFS) Job Fair in Washington, D.C. from Jan. 8-10. The attendees had the opportunity to meet with representatives from various federal agencies, tour the capital and meet Kansas Senator Jerry Moran.

The students, Ivan Macias, Jacob Smith and Elizabeth Wilson, were previously selected by the SFS program as the 2023 CyberCorps Scholars from WSU. Funded through National Science Foundation (NSF) grants, the program provides scholarships for up to three years of support for cybersecurity undergraduate and graduate education. In return for their scholarships, recipients agree to work after graduation for the United States Government, in a position related to cybersecurity, for a period equal to the length of the scholarship. Dr. Sergio Salinas, an associate professor in the School of Computing, and Joe Jabara, the director of cybersecurity education in the School of Computing, accompanied the students.
