Welu, Zwach Cyber Corps Scholars at DSU

The Dakota State University Cyber Corps Scholars are made up of cyber security undergraduate and graduate students who have achieved a 3.25 grade point average, enrolled in a cyber security program at DSU and are selected for their leadership and commitment to Dakota State.

The current members of the DSU Cyber Corps include Cody Welu of Milroy and Shawn Zwach of Tracy.

These students are awarded a full-ride academic scholarship and a $20,000-$30,000 stipend for the academic year. The scholarship is renewable for up to three years. During the summer, the Cyber Corps students complete internships at a federal, state, local, or tribal government agency related to cyber security.

After graduation, the Cyber Corps members work for a government agency for two to three years in exchange for the total years of scholarship awarded. The DSU Cyber Corps will be in Washington, D.C. Jan. 8-10 for a job fair with federal government agencies to assist with internship and full-time career placement.

The DSU Cyber Corps is funded by grants from the Nation Science Foundation and the Department of Defense.
