DHS SRT MSI: Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative

The Secretary’s Honors Program (SHP) Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative (CSVI) program is a nationwide program offering volunteer opportunities to current undergraduate and graduate students from 2 and 4 year academic institutions. Students have the opportunity to gain invaluable hands-on cyber experience through participation in challenging projects and real-life scenarios, while receiving mentoring from DHS cybersecurity professionals.

This initiative provides a way for the Department to expand the pipeline of future cyber talent needed to execute the unique cybersecurity mission at DHS Components.
