In an effort to further encourage young men and women to pursue a career in the field of cybersecurity, Ehijele recently launched the “Jr. Cyber Security Intellect Scholarship” fund, which awards a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating high school senior or rising college sophomore looking to make an impact in the field of cybersecurity.
