The Certification Accelerator Scholarship covers the application and registration fees to take one ASIS certification exam: either the CPP, PCI, PSP, or APP. The ASIS Foundation provides each ASIS chapter with ONE of these scholarships to award annually. Please see the information below for more details on how to award your chapter’s scholarship.

  1. Scholarship Committee
    • Form a scholarship committee in your chapter to manage the scholarship program.
    • Determine how you would like to select your winner. Options include: 
      • Identify all members eligible for ASIS certification (CPP, PCI, PSP, or APP) and pick a winner from that group. 
      • Conduct an application and judging process. Review applications and select a winner based on merit. (This process is outlined in the steps below.)
