Scholarship Opportunities

Securitas scholarship programs help qualified employees gain professional experience or support a family member in pursuing a degree program.

LEAD Program: College Scholarships & Professional Development

A highly subsidized, university-level education program

Securitas believes that education is critical to developing its talent and helping officers grow into leadership roles. Our Learning, Education and Development (LEAD) program provides our officers the opportunity to take college level classes through Purdue University Global.  They can choose between 4 exclusive online security certificates or apply to be enrolled in a BA/AA degree program. All of the classes are offered at little cost to the officers allowing them to walk away with college courses debt free. Currently we have over 250 officers enrolled with Purdue University Global.


Melker Schörling Scholarship

International travel experience to grow professional development

The knowledge and experience of our people is the foundation of Securitas. The Melker Schörling Scholarship offers our people the opportunity to develop professional knowledge and experience in an international setting.

The scholarship is offered annually to four front line employees who consistently make a difference for our customers by acting as everyday heroes in their work, except for 2021 when it was put on hold due to the ongoing pandemic.

The next opportunity to apply for the scholarship is by October 15, 2022, for the year 2023. 


Sons & Daughters Scholarship 

High School Graduation

Help your family member succeed with a college degree

Securitas USA awards up to ten scholarships annually for undergraduate study to encourage family members of security officers in their academic pursuits, particularly in security-related areas. Awards are granted annually and recipients are selected based on academic achievement, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals.

Current employees should contact the Securitas USA Talent Development Department with any questions about the Sons & Daughters Scholarship opportunity.
