The ASIS Foundation, Inc. developed by the ASIS Foundation, Inc. Board of Trustees has set the following goals in developing its scholarship policy.

  • To encourage ASIS Chapter members to further their education in the field of security;
  • To increase the number and amount of scholarships to deserving applicants;
  • To decentralize decision making;
  • To call national attention to the Society as an institution committed to the betterment of the security profession;
  • To encourage scholarship award activities at all levels.

The purpose of the scholarship process is to provide each ASIS Chapter with a means to recognize and to promote individuals who are interested in the security profession, by providing financial assistance.

The Foundation will highlight the significance of scholarship recognition as a noteworthy credential for those who wish to enter the security profession. Chapters are encouraged to involve scholarship winners in professional development opportunities as a means of introducing them to the security profession.

The Foundation is particularly interested in encouraging mid-career security professionals, who are ASIS Chapter members, to engage in undergraduate degree completion programs and part-time graduate programs, as well as professional development programs as specified by the scholarship program rules. Examples of professional development are: APC I, II, III; CPP Review; ASIS workshops and other programs offered by training and development organizations.

Matching and Regional Awards
The Foundation will match scholarships from 50 Chapters per calendar year. Each Chapter may select one matching scholarship winner per year. The Chapter must follow the minimum selection criteria/procedures stated in this policy. If the matching scholarship winner is an ASIS Chapter member, the Foundation will add up to $1000 to the winner's check (e.g. Chapter gives a $250 scholarship to an ASIS member, Foundation will add $500 for a total of $750; or a Chapter gives $500 to an ASIS member, Foundation will give $1000 for a total of $1500). If the recipient of the matching scholarship is not an ASIS Chapter member, the Foundation will only add up to $500 to the scholarship winner's check.

All Chapter matching scholarship winners may be considered for the Regional Vice President's Award. Each RVP may award one $500 scholarship each year. This is a flat grant from the Foundation with no matching funds required from the Chapter. The recipient will be selected from the list of Chapter winners by the RVP. The criteria are the same as in the basic policy. The RVP winner must be a Chapter matching scholarship award winner.

Chapter Role
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter funds a local scholarship of $500 each year.

Selection Criteria for Students (one to one match)
Applicants must be either a full-time or part-time student and have completed one year of study at a recognized college, university or community college.
A minimum grade point of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) will be required for both graduate and undergraduate students.

Candidates will submit the following:

  • An application form and an official grade transcript.
  • An institutional validation of program enrollment (or acceptance in the case of transfer students) in a fully accredited college, university or community college.
  • A recommendation from a faculty member.

Selection Criteria of Professional Development (two for one match)
Professional development program applicants must be Chapter members in good standing who have been ASIS members for at least one year. ASIS student members are not eligible for the two for one match. This criterion is in consonance with the Foundation's desire to encourage full-time security professionals to pursue professional development.

Candidates will submit the following:

  • Application form
  • Description of course or program.
  • Statement from Chapter chairman outlining reason for selection.

Financial need shall not be a factor in the selection process for either the student or the professional development award as the purpose of the award is to provide recognition of achievement and ability.

Jack Buckley Fund
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter intends to use Buckley Funds to give educational grants and scholarships to chapter members. The quantity and specifications of these awards will be decided each year by the executive council.
