Out of curiosity, I had look at the application process for the 6 months scholarship program, being a woman in IT. Not only is registration on the sans.org website obligatory, but then they also require that you register with the Cyversity website.
This alarmed me a little, as the two options are Professional, or Student. Professional means forking over $100 per year.
Anyway, after jumping through hoops, a link for a 50 question (2 hour) assessment is e-mailed to you, to complete within 5 days.
I'll let you know what happens when I complete the assessment....
