Le Moyne College’s GenCyber summer programs are generously funded by the National Science Foundation and supported by the National Security Agency. “The GenCyber program strives to be a part of the solution to the Nation’s shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to utilize their talents in cybersecurity is critical to the future of our country’s national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives.”

Applications for the 2023 Camp

Le Moyne College will be actively recruiting a diverse cohort of students to our campus for our GenCyber program. Inspired by St. Ignatius of Loyola's capacity to find God in all things, Le Moyne seeks to build a respectful, welcoming campus culture that celebrates differences and models inclusion. Uniqueness is expressed through gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical and mental attributes, and religious and political beliefs. 

Applications for the 2023 camp will be available in Late Fall/ Early Winter 2023

Both programs are FREE to accepted applicants. There will only be 30 students admitted to each program session.
