THOTCON Future Hacker Scholarship

Are you a high school senior in a Chicago Public School? Do you enjoy breaking software, security controls and physical things to understand how they work? If so, the THOTCON Future Hacker Scholarship might be for you.

This is a $5,000 award designed to help a future hacker with their higher education ambitions. To apply, you must be a CPS high school senior planning on full-time undergraduate study at a two- or four-year school next year. You must be planning to pursue a major related to cyber security (computer science, computer engineering, information systems with a security concentration, etc) and demonstrate financial need.

In addition to the scholarship award, the recipient will be invited and honored at the next THOTCON gathering!
