IASP?

General Discussion for SMART Scholarship Recipients

IASP?

Postby Gandalf » Sun Aug 27, 2017 2:50 am

Well I have accepted SMART obviously, but was recently contacted about the IASP scholarship that is basically the same as SMART but focuses more on cyber and the stipend is $2500 less per year. The location and career path of the IASP facility I was chosen by is favorable over my SF for SMART, so my question is, how would the DoD feel about an internal transition since both are programs in the DoD? Anybody have any experience with something like this?

Disclaimer: I am not speaking from first hand experience.

You signed a contract to work for a specific lab, according to SMART's purview. SMART will not agree to let you leave the program without consent of the DoD itself. SMART is the DoD, but is a separate program, so they do not talk to IASP. Hope that helps.

You can always break the contract and pay back the money

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.
