Women in Cyber Security scholarship program with University of Queensland


Five scholarships will be awarded to women studying University of Queensland’s Master of Cyber Security

The University of Queensland (UQ) has announced the launch of the HP Women in Cyber Security scholarship program. This new program is designed to support the development of female talent across Australia’s information technology and cyber security industries and furthers HP’s commitment to boost equal opportunity in the workforce.

With the first intake to commence in August 2020, this scholarship will be awarded to five women enrolled in UQ’s new Master of Cyber Security. It will cover course fees to the sum of $20,000 per year for the two-year duration of this program.

Rachael Williams, National Enterprise Manager Education/Government at HP Australia said, “As malicious actors get creative in their methods of attack, the cyber security industry requires not only more technical experts, but those who bring a diverse range of skills and backgrounds to keep the industry one step ahead. Education is where it all starts, and today we are proud to announce the HP Women in Cyber Security Scholarship in partnership with leading innovator and educator University of Queensland.”

UQ’s Master of Cyber Security was launched in 2020 to offer students a deeper understanding of cyber security’s impact on every aspect of modern life. Unique to this program is a truly inter-disciplinary approach that brings in students from technology, business, mathematics, social science and law to empower cyber security leaders for a resilient and productive digital future.

Recipients of the HP Women in Cyber Security Scholarship will be announced in July 2020, prior to commencement of study in August.
