The Information Networking Institute (INI) partners with the Executive Women's Forum (EWF), sponsored byAlta Associates, to offer a full scholarship to an incoming INI student.
Alta Associates is a premier executive recruitment firm specializing in Information Security, IT Audit, Risk Management and Privacy. In 2003, Alta Associates organized the first ever Executive Women's Forum on Information Security for leaders in information security, privacy and risk management, and they have been holding annual forums since that time. The EWF is a group of over 200 of the most senior executive women in information security, risk management and privacy who share experiences and build trust-based relationships.
This scholarship was first offered in the Fall 2007 to support a student from a historically underrepresented population. Awardees, known as EWF Fellows, receive a full scholarship and have the opportunity to be mentored by an EWF participant who is at a senior level in the information security field.
Recipients of the EWF scholarship must meet the following criteria: be admitted to an INI graduate program; have an accumulated GPA of at least 3.25 prior to entering Carnegie Mellon and maintain a minimum 3.25 GPA while at the INI; have no outstanding employment contract or obligation while attending Carnegie Mellon; show exemplary promise and potential; and demonstrate exceptional leadership skills.
