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’ve opened up a second scholarship for 2019 to experienced digital forensics experts who have no experience with Magnet AXIOM.
What Recipients Will Receive
FREE 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.
FREE 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.
