“Ideal CyberGirl?”

There is no such thing as an “Ideal CyberGirl”

The CyberGirls Fellowship application process is deliberately tailored to consider each applicant as a unique and whole person. This enables us to carefully seek out individuals who are passionate and dedicated to breaking barriers and equipping themselves with the required skills to begin their careers in cybersecurity, improve their local communities and seize work opportunities in Africa and across the world.
