IT and communications company Apptis Inc. announced with the University of Maryland University College a newly established Wounded Warrior Scholarship Fund, which grants scholarships to veterans who have sustained injury or suffer illness related to their military service, as well as their spouses and dependents.
Army veteran and Apptis President Skip Nowland said it's an honor to establish this scholarship fund in support of the country's veterans.
“Cybersecurity continues to be a real and growing concern throughout the world and we are dedicated to helping build the next generation of cyber warriors to combat this threat,“ he said.
UMUC has more than 2,000 students enrolled in its master's and bachelor's cybersecurity degree programs. The 20 individuals awarded the scholarships must be enrolled in one of those efforts.
“We are deeply grateful to Apptis for its generous support of our veterans and their families and tremendously proud that it has chosen to channel that support through UMUC's cybersecurity program, which offers great professional opportunities while also responding to critical security needs in business, government and the military,“ said UMUC President Susan C. Aldridge.
