Those interested in applying for Vector Security’s Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarships must do so before the Tuesday, March 31, 2020 deadline. Applications can be submitted via the Vector Security website.
The scholarships provide financial support to loss prevention professionals – or those who have an interest in loss prevention – seeking to obtain LPQ and LPC certifications. Vector Security began awarding the scholarships in 2009 in support of career development and continuing education for professionals in this important and rapidly-growing industry.
More than 260 scholarships totaling $262,460 have been awarded since the program began. The scholarships cover all course and examination fees for retail loss prevention professionals who wish to obtain LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified (LPQ) or Loss Prevention Certified (LPC) certifications.
A total of 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to U.S.-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to Canadian-based professionals.
Anyone currently in the loss prevention industry, or has an interest in the industry, may apply for an LPQ scholarship. Those applying for the LPC scholarship must meet certain eligibility requirements.
All interest individuals are encouraged to apply, including those who applied in the past, but were not selected. Hurry though, the March 31 deadline is fast-approaching!
