LINCROFT, N.J. (AP) — Ten people have won scholarships to attend the nation’s first cybersecurity learning center, which will be based at a central New Jersey school.
The winners earned their spots Saturday during a competition that drew 100 participants, including high school and college students, veterans and jobseekers. The competitors did battle in a hands-on, interactive learning environment used by the U.S. military.
The goal of the learning center planned for Brookdale Community College in Lincroft is to develop a career pathway for cybersecurity professionals. It will be funded by a two-year, $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
Organizers hope to eventually develop a network of similar facilities across the nation.
The center is a public-private partnership that includes Brookdale, the SANS Institute, the Cyber Aces Foundation and Counter Hack Challenges.
