TYSONS CORNER, VA, Jan. 25, 2017 — Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) and (ISC)2’s charitable trust will award scholarships to six women to support their efforts to achieve cybersecurity degrees and careers, GovCon Executive said Tuesday.

Three female college students and three mid-career professionals will be selected for the Raytheon Women’s Cybersecurity Scholarship by (ISC)2’s Center for Cyber Safety and Education, the company said Monday.

“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.”
