Groundbreaking Scholarship Program Provides Path for Prince George’s County Public Schools Students to Earn a UMUC Bachelor’s Degree for $10,000 or Less
Cybersecurity is not your father’s STEM field and liberal arts majors with more than a passing interest in the industry may benefit from taking a closer look at the career possibilities it offers. For his part, Professor Mansur Hasib, program chair of University of Maryland University College (UMUC) graduate Cybersecurity Technology program, knows that the cybersecurity field itself would benefit from the infusion of interdisciplinary skills that liberal arts majors would bring to it.
A Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony will finalize commitments made between PGCPS, PGCC and UMUC at the start of the new school year for the inaugural class of 18 Prince George’s 3D Scholars. The three institutions created this pilot scholarship program to provide a pathway for high-achieving high school students to earn dual enrollment credits toward an associate’s degree at PGCC, before transferring to UMUC to earn a bachelor’s degree for a total cost of $10,000 or less.
Cybersecurity faculty members are recognized as leaders who are inspiring change within the information security workforce

Justin Sullivan’s resume is impressive. During combat tours in Afghanistan, the Navy information systems technician first class was credited with saving two lives. He has received a number of awards for community engagement, including the President’s Volunteer Service Award—twice. He is in line for a promotion to chief petty officer and is weighing the option of becoming a limited duty officer, a commissioned officer designation for Navy members who are considered very highly skilled.
Now Sullivan, who holds a bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity from University of Maryland University College (UMUC), has added another prestigious honor to his resume. The Military Times named him Service Member of the Year. The coveted award is given annually to a member of each branch of the military.
