Release date- 23012017 - DULLES, Va., - Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and the Center for Cyber Safety and Education will offer six new scholarships this year to encourage women to pursue cybersecurity degrees.

'Recent global surveys show young women see fewer opportunities in cyber careers than young men do,' said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services business. 'If we can create a clear path to cybersecurity careers for women, we can help eliminate the serious cyber talent shortage and make our country and the world more secure.'

Administered by the Center, a charitable trust formed in 2011 by the international nonprofit (ISC)-2 , Raytheon Women's Cybersecurity Scholarships will be awarded to six women annually. Three scholarships will go to women entering college, and three to mid-career professionals seeking to expand their skill sets or change career fields. Selected scholarship recipients may receive a paid summer internship in Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services Cybersecurity and Special Missions business. Additional benefits include a voucher for the recipients' (ISC)-2 certification exam of their choice and a fully paid, first-year (ISC)-2 membership after passing the exam and becoming endorsed. This initiative triples the partnership's investment to more than $100,000 since 2016.

Raytheon provides career opportunities in:

Computer network operations, defense and exploitation

Information assurance

Cyber resiliency

Managed security services

Cybersecurity operations centers

The Center, the nonprofit charitable trust of (ISC)-2, uses cybersecurity education and awareness programs to empower students, teachers and the public to secure their online presence.

'The recent (ISC)-2 Global Information Security Workforce Study revealed a workforce gap in the information security field of 1.5 million in the next five years. We see that as an untapped market of potential information security professionals,' said Center Director Patrick Craven. 'With this partnership, the Center and Raytheon can actively support women who are focusing their studies on information security, and give them the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience.'
