CAE Mentor and Advisor Resources

 

Application to Become a Mentor or Pre-submission Reviewer

In partnership with the National Security Agency (NSA), the Candidates Program helps regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities prepare high-quality applications for the National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity designation. The CAE Candidates Program is in need of mentors and pre-submission reviewers to assist new applicants in earning the CAE designation. To qualify, individuals must have significantly contributed to a CAE application resulting in the award of the designation for their institution. This work requires a strong understanding of both the Program of Study validation and the CAE application process. Additional requirements and expectations are listed on the application web page.
