A native Columbus woman hasbecome one of 11 women around the country to receive a scholarship award andinternship in an area of study currently searching for new candidates to face agrowing number of threats.  

Trang Nguyen graduated fromColumbus High School, and is currently a graduate student at Columbus StateUniversity. Her scholarship is to study internet security, a job market with a40 percent vacancy rate, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute.
