UNA, MartinFed sign learning agreement

FLORENCE – The University of North Alabama and MartinFed, a Huntsville-based cyber
security firm, signed an agreement this week to help employees continue their education.

Through the agreement, nearly 200 MartinFed employees will be eligible for a scholarship  to pursue online, on-campus, graduate, or undergraduate degrees from UNA.

“I am thrilled that the most innovative and fastest-growing university in the State of Alabama has forged this partnership with MartinFed, one of the fastest-growing and most innovative technology firms in the entire southeast,” said Dr. Ross Alexander, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.

Matthew Schmitz, MartinFed chief growth officer and a UNA alumnus, said investing in team members is a priority at his company.

“Providing this educational benefit is an additional investment in the team members that help provide for the safety and security of our nation every single day,” he said.

MartinFed has a long-time relationship with UNA. The company sponsored the Lions’ football game with Jacksonville State at Toyota Field last fall.
