Secondary Institutions:
Public School Districts & CTE Departments

Any Community College (Post-Secondary) or Public School District (Secondary) institution in the United States and Canada that is registered under the EC-Council Academia partner program may participate. These institutions must be utilizing Academia Series resources within for-credit, degree granting course(s) to be eligible to take advantage of C2SI scholarships. C2SI is NOT available for non-credit programs offered to the public (including boot camps), and only caters to courses and programs within an Associate’s degree program or K-12 program within a Community College or Public School District.


Why Was C2SI Developed?

Why was this program developed? EC-Council’s Academic division strongly believes that Community Colleges in the U.S. and Canada play a vital role within the higher education system. EC-Council is passionate about supporting Cybersecurity programs catering to underserved communities, low-income students, students of color, budget limitations, and other circumstances. In result, C2SI was developed to further support Community Colleges students with affordable pathways to EC-Council certifications and learning resources with scholarships on eCourseware, lab ranges, and additional eLearning bundles.
