  • Scholarship Description
  • In 1996, the Electronic Security Association launched the Youth Scholarship Program. The program was created to promote goodwill among the electronic life safety and security industry and police and fire officers by providing college scholarship awards to their deserving sons or daughters.

    Through the Youth Scholarship Program, thousands of dollars have been given to students attending higher education institutions across our country. In fact, more than $541,500 has been given out by the participating states and ESA.
    Today, ESA and participating Chartered Chapter Associations are involved in the scholarship program. The first-place winner of each state's program is automatically considered for the national ESA Youth Scholarship Program awards.
    Students who reside in a participating state must enter their state-level scholarship program to be considered for the national awards. Students who reside in a state without an ESA chapter or in a non-participating state should submit their applications directly to ESA. ESA will select one of these students as the national nominee to compete with the state winners.

    Each state program awards scholarships at various levels; check with your participating ESA chapter for information on specific state award levels. ESA awards a $8,500 scholarship to the first-place winner, and $3,500 to the second-place winner.

    Awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and the essay. In addition to completing the application and submitting the appropriate documentation, each student must write an essay explaining "What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community."

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
