NextGen Scholarship

Creating positive global impact starts with nurturing the next generation of talent.

The CrowdStrike Foundation established our NextGen Scholarship program to support the development of the rising class of talent and leadership in cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence (AI). NextGen Scholarships provide financial assistance to select U.S.-based undergraduate and graduate students studying in fields that will advance the mission of our organization to stop breaches and make the digital world a safer place to live and work.
