The University of Massachusetts Amherst is a NSF Scholarship for Service (SFS) site.  In this program, students commit to taking a federal or state job related specifically to security upon graduation in exchange for a scholarship covering tuition and other educational costs, as well as a salary, while at enrolled at UMass.  Employment at government agencies are full pay and benefits at any agency; e.g., National Institutes of Health, FBI, Centers for Disease Control, CIA, Department of Justice, and analogous agencies at a state or local level. By federal law, the program is open to only US citizens and permanent residents, and has a number of other special details. The program is suited for students that are at most two years from graduation, but anyone is welcome to attend the session planning for application in future years.

This information session will tell you about the program and its details. See also this web page:

The presentation will be about 20 minutes, and then I'll stay to answer your questions.

Undergraduate and graduate students can start the SFS program in Spring 2018 if they need at least two more semesters to graduate (but not more than four semesters).  The program is open to students enrolled in CS, ECE, Math, or Isenberg degrees.
