Magnet Forensics Scholarship Program

Giving a Head Start in Digital Investigations

If you are currently performing a non-technical role and would like to explore future career opportunities in digital forensics, then this scholarship program is for you!

Magnet Forensics is offering two scholarship awards, so in addition to non-technical roles, we have a second scholarship available for experienced digital forensics experts who have no experience with Magnet AXIOM and want to learn all about how it can help them in their investigations.

What Recipients Will Receive

WORLD-CLASS DIGITAL FORENSICS TRAINING

Starting from the very basics of digital forensics and working right through to advanced smartphone and computer forensics, you’ll be able to take unlimited training from Magnet Forensics for a year.

OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN DIGITAL FORENSICS CERTIFICATION

After completing our training, you’ll be eligible to become a Magnet Certified Forensics Examiner (MCFE) — demonstrating your expertise and giving you credibility within your agency and on the stand.

SOFTWARE LICENSE FOR ONE YEAR

With the scholarship, you will also receive a one-year Magnet AXIOM license — giving you access to a comprehensive digital forensics tool that will help you find and report on evidence from smartphones, computers, and the cloud.

A TRIP TO MAGNET USER SUMMIT 2021

We’ll send the scholarship winner to Nashville for Magnet User Summit 2021 to learn more about the latest industry trends, get hands on experience at workshops as well as connect with other professionals in the space.
