SIA Teams With University of Phoenix to Launch Scholarship Program

The scholarship program is open to full-time employees of SIA member companies.

SILVER SPRING, Md. –  The Security Industry Association (SIA) and the University of Phoenix have announced a scholarship program for employees of SIA member companies.

Ten scholarships will be awarded, covering full tuition for prospective students to complete an undergraduate or graduate degree program at the University.

Recipients will have the option to attend a University of Phoenix campus or complete a degree online.

“The SIA Scholarship Program provides employees of SIA member companies with an unparalleled opportunity to advance their careers through achievement in higher education,” says SIA CEO Don Erickson. “This opportunity represents precisely the sort of value SIA strives to provide its members, and I am very grateful to the University of Phoenix for working with us to change the lives of 10 ambitious individuals.”

In order to apply, applicants will be required to write an essay and provide a letter of recommendation. High importance will be placed on the applicant’s desire to advance in their education, with an emphasis on furthering their careers, and their impact in the community they reside.

Applicants must submit their materials by Jan. 10, 2017; however, SIA and the University of Phoenix, the largest for-profit university in the U.S., will stop accepting applications once 150 complete and eligible submissions have been received.
