Applications are now being accepted for scholarships offered through the Security Industry Association (SIA) RISE program. The SIA RISE Scholarship—available to SIA RISE program participants who are employees of SIA member companies or SIA student members—provides recipients with funds for professional development.
Funds awarded from the scholarship pool can be used to expand professional knowledge in the areas of human resources, information technology, marketing/sales, project management, security engineering and risk management.
“SIA RISE represents the next generation of security professionals, and it’s critical for this group to have access to training and education to help them in their careers,” said Don Erickson, SIA’s CEO. “SIA is proud to support the careers of young professionals in the security industry through its scholarship program and offerings and looks forward to awarding these 2018 funds.”
Through this program, $30,000 will be granted—as 10 scholarships worth $3,000 each—to allow recipients to complete professional development courses and/or academic programs.
