Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp, part of NYC Cyber

New York City wants to be the next global leader in cyber security.

That means investing in new cyber security technologies, attracting cyber security companies--and making sure our city has the workforce to make it all happen. And we're just one part of that.

While you're learning cyber security skills here at the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp, other partners will be developing a cyber security curriculum for universities and building a cyber security startup incubator.

Cyber NYC

This scholarship from New York City pays up to 100% of your tuition at Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp.

To realize its cyber security goals, the City of New York is offering full-tuition scholarships to 24 qualifying New Yorkers to attend the first Founder’s Cohort of the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp 100% tuition-free.

Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp

And it doesn't stop there.

Each of the first three Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp cohorts, known as Founder’s Cohorts, will offer a number of full-tuition scholarships to eligible applicants. Here’s how it works:

  • All Cyber NYC Bootcamp Scholarship recipients will receive a $17,610-dollar-education for free.
  • To reserve their spot in the program, they will be required to pay a $2,000 deposit at the time of enrollment, but that deposit will be refunded to them in total upon program completion.
  • Students who are unable to pay the $2,000 deposit will have the option to apply for a loan through our lending partner Skills Fund.

$2,000 Deposit + $0 Tuition - $2,000 Deposit Refund = $0 Total Cost to Eligible New Yorkers
