The most rigorous cybersecurity training program in Canada, CLIC offers you the opportunity to earn two globally-recognized SANS GIAC certifications, hone your skills in the Catalyst Cyber Range, gain career mentorship from leading cyber experts, as well as connect with major employers in the sector.

The Catalyst is committed to fostering diversity and equality, and CLIC offers scholarships and personalized support tailored for women in the program.

Scholarships Through BlackBerry

In partnership with BlackBerry’s new Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, we are excited to offer the Catalyst’s world-class CLIC program in Malaysia beginning in May 2024. The Catalyst is also teaming up with SANS Institute to provide full CLIC scholarships to three qualified Malaysian women candidates.

Scholarships for Women in CLIC

With women holding only about 25% of cybersecurity roles worldwide, it’s clear there is significant work to do to close the gender gap in cybersecurity. The Catalyst is deeply committed to helping close this disparity in the industry. 

Thanks to our partners, RBC and Rogers Communications, we are offering a limited number of $5,000 scholarships to women enrolling in CLIC.
