The NSA/Stokes Educational Scholarship Program

The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program

The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program is designed to recruit senior high school students and college sophomores who demonstrate the capability to develop skills critical to the mission of the National Security Agency (NSA). These skills include mathematics, computer science, electrical or computer engineering, and certain foreign languages. To qualify for the Stokes Program, students must meet the following requirements: SAT score of 1,100 or higher, or composite ACT score of 25 or higher and a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. Application deadline is November 30th of the student’s senior year of high school or, for students majoring in one of our core languages, sophomore year in college. These students would need at least six credits in a language of interest to us and a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students receive full tuition and incur an employment obligation upon graduation.
