These scholarships provide matching funds for an education award to a chapter member or undergraduate/graduate student seeking a security career.
If a scholarship is awarded to a chapter member, the Foundation doubles the chapter's award, up to $1,000.
If a scholarship is awarded to a student, the Foundation matches the amount up to $500.
The Foundation funds 30 Chapter Matching Scholarships per calendar year. Limit one per chapter.
In order for chapters to participate in the scholarship program, scholarship awards must be sent to the ASIS Foundation with the scholarship paperwork. The Foundation will return a check made out to the chapter award winner. Please allow at least three weeks for processing and return of the check.
Applications accepted between January 2 and November 18, 2017.
Complete and submit the application and the chapter chair form
A scholarship may be awarded to an ASIS member or full and part-time students who completed one year of study at an accredited college or university and seek a career in the security profession. The chapter sets the grade-point-average requirement for the undergraduate student award. Graduate students must earn at least a 3.0 out of a possible 4.0.
The Foundation encourages mid-career security professionals to complete undergraduate degrees and to pursue part-time graduate programs or professional development courses. Financial need is not a factor in the selection process; rather, the award is meant to recognize achievement and ability. Contact your chapter chair for details.
Chapters select winners at the local level. Once a chapter submits the winning application and a check for their portion of the scholarship to the ASIS Foundation, the award winner qualifies for a matching award, if eligible, under Foundation selection criteria.
