The Scholarship for Service (SFS) program is administered and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in cooperation with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Scholarship benefits include full tuition and fees, a cost-of-living stipend, and reimbursement for travel expenses and professional development. Students awarded a scholarship incur a service obligation to the government upon graduation from UAH and are required to participate in a paid internship during the summer semester.

The SFS shares an application with the Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Scholarship Program (CySP). The CySP has similar benefits to the SFS; however, students are immediately paired with a DoD employer upon receipt of the scholarship. Applicants are considered for both scholarships under a single submission.
