COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The University of Maryland and Parsons, an engineering, construction, technical, and management services firm, have partnered to provide academic scholarships to current and future undergraduate students in the UMD Honors College Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students (ACES). Through a gift from Parsons, 24 scholarships will be awarded to high-achieving students during the next three years. In addition to the scholarships, Parsons will provide professional insights to students, as well as exposure to varied career options in the field of cybersecurity.

The ACES program, the first and only full four-year honors undergraduate program in cybersecurity, was launched in fall 2013 and includes a two-year living-learning component and a two-year advanced program of study in cybersecurity.
