NCF #CyberChat - Student Security Clearances: Your Past Impacts Your Future

Project SCOPE (Security Clearance Overview and Preparation Education) aims to help students understand, navigate and master the security clearance process.

During this NCF #CyberChat held via our Nepris online classroom, Jennifer Munt, Education and Workforce Director at the Ft. Meade Alliance will introduce students to the Intelligence Community before looking at the who, how, and why of security clearances. Through this discussion, students will be challenged to think about the ways in which the actions and choices they make today can affect their future career paths – whether they choose to pursue a security-cleared career or not. View a video preview about this #CyberChat via the link provided below.

Please visit the Nepris page (See link below) for details. You must register to attend the live session or to view the recording.

About Us

T he NCF's Vision is to Influence the cryptologic future by sharing our educational resources, stimulating new knowledge, and commemorating our heritage.

The NCF also provides needed support to the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM), the first public museum in the U.S. Intelligence Community.

Located adjacent to the National Security Agency (NSA) in Maryland, the NCM houses a unique and priceless collection of artifacts that represent our Nation's history in code making and code breaking, as well as a world class library of cryptologic media. The NCF acquires the best artifacts for the Museum and supports new educational and interactive exhibits.

The Foundation provides exceptional cryptologic programs throughout the year, encourages young minds to explore cryptology and cyber education and careers,  hosts educational, cryptology-related exhibits at various community events, and honors the people— past, present, and future—whose contributions to our national security protect and make possible our way of life.

As part of the Foundation's partnership with NSA to build the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation - Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (CCEI-NCM), the NCF also serves as a leader in the field of cybersecurity - striving to provide the best in educational resources and programs.

The NCF has a three-part mission to Educate, Stimulate, and Commemorate. Learn more about our MISSION.
