Grant Proposal Submission Guidelines

To support the emerging demands for strategic intelligence by security practitioners around the world, the ASIS Foundation launched a new research initiative in 2012. The primary objective is to produce valuable, actionable knowledge for the security field and its professionals.
Funding, up to $100,000, will be considered for original, high-quality, practical research projects that advance the practice of security management.

Ideas for a research projects that would increase security knowledge and produce information that can help security professionals perform their work better are sought.

Research Project Submissions

To submit an idea for a research project, first submit a Letter of Inquiry to the Foundation for review and approval. Should your initial request be approved, you will be asked to further develop a grant proposal.

Employees or board members of ASIS International, the ASIS Foundation, or the Foundation Research Council are not eligible to apply for ASIS Foundation research grants. Applicants must disclose whether they have any connection whatever to an ASIS International, ASIS Foundation or Foundation Research Council director or employee, such as the director or employee having any ownership, partnership, shareholder, controlling, family or financial interest in the applicant. Such relationship or connection may or may not disqualify the applicant, in the sole discretion and judgment of the ASIS Foundation, from receiving a grant. Failure to disclose any such relationship or connection will certainly disqualify the applicant from further consideration and, if not discovered until after the grant has been awarded, may result in cancellation of the grant and/or the recovery of amounts already paid or advanced.
