Google, in coordination with the Consortium of Cybersecurity Clinics, granted 15 colleges, universities and community colleges up to $1 million each to create new cybersecurity clinics at campuses across the country.
In addition to the financial support, the selected higher education institutions will also receive opportunities for student mentorship from Google. The company’s cybersecurity clinics fund seeks to strengthen members of the Consortium of Cybersecurity clinics and bolster the cyber workforce, according to a Google announcement.
“It’s essential that we invest in growing a strong, diverse and widespread cybersecurity workforce to help protect everyone—from critical infrastructure to small businesses and schools,” Heather Adkins, Google’s vice president of security engineering, said in a press release. “The 15 clinics that we’re helping to establish serve a wide variety of students across all corners of the U.S. and we’re excited to see the impact they’ll have in their local communities.”
Leaders from the University of Hawaii, one of the recipient schools, wrote in a news release that the funding will allow its cybersecurity clinic to begin offering a free online introductory course on cyber topics to 500 students over the next five years beginning in January 2025. The new clinic will be based at the university’s Maui College but will collaborate with campuses across the system.
