ASIS Foundation launches new scholarship for military personnel
The ASIS Foundation has joined forces with the ASIS Military Liaison Council to establish a new scholarship to aid active-duty military personnel in their pursuit of one of ASIS International's board certifications (CPP, PCI or PSP).
The ASIS Foundation/Military Liaison Council Certification Scholarship will cover the expenses of preparing for one of the ASIS board certifications for a active-duty member of the military who is also an ASIS International member. The opportunity is open to military members of any nation.
“Government funding for professional certifications varies greatly among the military services, as it also varies from nation to nation. As a result, many military members must pay for certification costs out of their own pockets," Joseph Rector, co-chair of the ASIS Military Liaison Council, said in a statement. "We are excited about this partnership with the ASIS Foundation which provides an opportunity for military members, who are ASIS members, to pursue and enhance their development in the security profession.”
The ASIS Foundation is seeking individual and corporation donations to capitalize the scholarship fund.
The scholarships will be awarded based on duty performance, community leadership, and self-improvement achievements. Application deadline is Aug. 10, 2012.
To apply, visit the scholarship website. The awards will be presented in Philadelphia at the ASIS 2012 Law Enforcement and Military Appreciation Day Luncheon on Wed., Sept. 12, 2012.
