Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP)
As a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education, (CAEIAE) Regis University is pleased to offer current and prospective students the opportunity to apply for scholarships which include work with the DoD (Department of Defense) in the field of Information Assurance.
RU was awarded the CAEIAE Status in June of 2007. The designation as a Center of Academic Excellence allows us to participate in the scholarship process. The Center is pleased to announce the reception of our second scholarship student who is pursuing a Master's in IA. In addition to pursuing his studies, he will research the use of portal technology in IA Security.
