Masters in Homeland Security Scholarships and Fellowships

Master of Homeland Security Scholarships and Fellowships

The Master of Homeland Security didn't exist prior to 9/11, so there is no rich and illustrious history of endowed scholarships for the degree. However since many universities offer the degree as an adjunct to a criminal justice program or a graduate program in business, it is possible to apply for financial aid that is earmarked for studies in those areas and qualify for consideration. The Master of Homeland Security and related degrees in security policy, national safety and public safety may also qualify as criminal justice degrees or public administration degrees, another area where some schools offer the homeland security specialization. This degree may be something of a gray area for graduate level fellowships that are university administered, so an early discussion with the university financial aid office at schools where you are considering an application would be well worthwhile.

1. John Jay College of Criminal Justice is one of the finest criminal justice schools in the nation. There are several criminal justice and graduate level programs in public administration that are relevant to homeland security. There is a program for graduate student scholarships in the amount of $2,000 that is underwritten by the school. There is also the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship, an endowed program that awards a $1,000 grant each year to a graduate student at the college. The International Graduate Scholarship is for students from other countries, also a $2,000 annual award. There are two additional endowed programs that make funding available to graduate students who have completed at least twelve credit hours of graduate work at the College.

2. Lint Center for National Security Studies is a non-profit organization that supports research and scholarship in the field of national defense, counterintelligence and national security. The Center has seven endowed scholarship programs available to students who meet the criteria for the various programs, which have awards that range from $500 to $2,500. One of the aims for this organization is developing experts in intelligence, which is a primary function of some of the DHS agencies.

3. American Criminal Justice Association Lambda Alpha Epsilon is a national organization with multiple chapters scattered throughout the states. There is a scholarship program for students studying a criminal justice field that is available to both undergraduate and graduate students. Applicants must be members of the organization.

4. National Military Intelligence Association has a foundation that offers scholarships to graduate students studying in an appropriate academic discipline relevant to the mission of the organization, which is to support the professional development of military intelligence practitioners and those studying to work in support of the armed forces and homeland security efforts. Students in a homeland security academic program qualify for this program, which awards $2,000 to part time students and $3,000 to full time students.

5. Women in Federal Law Enforcement (WIFLE) has established a scholarship fund for women who are studying for a degree in a law enforcement related field, at either the undergraduate or graduate level. There are two programs, one for applicants at large that is awarded based on academic merit and need, and one program for members of WIFLE who are currently enrolled in school.
