OWASP Student Chapters Program
OWASP Student Chapters Program is a way to integrate passionate AppSec students. We want to create students chapters in order to organise events, meetings and have fun!
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) has local chapters around the world that help teach, learn, and inspire application security. Our College Chapters program helps to extend application security into colleges and universities worldwide. If your school has a computer science or management information systems degree, we want to start a College Chapter there.
If you're interested in starting a College Chapter at your school, please review the rules for the College Chapter program below and then send an email to the project leader Mateo Martinez, all we expect is that you will find a location, organize monthly meetings, learn a lot about application security, behave ethically, and have fun!
