The Phoenix Chapter of ASIS International is pleased to announce that candidates are being sought for the Spring 2017 Foundation Scholarship. The Foundation’s mission is to provide research and scholarship opportunities that promote, enhance and advance the security professional through philanthropic endeavors.  In that spirit, we are pleased to offer one $500 scholarship to a deserving student.

We are currently seeking applicants for the scholarship to be awarded in March 2017. The scholarship packet can be found on the Phoenix Chapter ASIS home page under the ASIS Foundation Tab, Chapter Matching Scholarships. Please note that the Spring scholarship opportunity is sponsored solely by the Phoenix Chapter, therefore no scholarship match is being awarded by ASIS International. The matching scholarship opportunity is offered by the Phoenix Chapter and ASIS International during the Fall semester only.

 Interested candidates must submit the application, a copy of official school transcripts including a cumulative GPA, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or colleague, and a 250-word narrative that describes your plan for a career in the security profession, including degrees and/or professional development courses, applicable memberships, and specific areas of interest. The application/documentation will be judged together and the winner will receive a $500 scholarship. The application/documentation must be submitted to and must be received no later than February 28, 2017.

 We are excited to be able to offer this scholarship and we look forward to the entries.  If you have any questions or need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me at 602-331-7000 or
