We've all received so much from the community at large, we also want to find ways to give back.

We have partnered with AITP to setup a financial reward/scholarship to students that are pursuing cyber security related fields at Wisconsin public colleges.

We will work with the NE Wisconsin Chapter of AITP to review applicants for scholarships to select recipients.


We will be requesting that attendees consider making a direct donation to the scholarship fund while attending the GRASSr00tz conference.

In addition to direct contributions, any sponsorship funds that above the costs of the conference will be deposited into the scholarship fund.

We are not a non-profit... yet. We hope to achieve non-profit status in the upcoming years and continue building up the scholarship.
