Award Overview

John Manning was a dear friend of the Boston chapter who touched the lives and careers of many security professionals. An ASIS Foundation endowment fund was established to memorialize the values for which John stood. The emphasis is to assist in the career development of security practitioners.

Manning Fund Scholarship nominees must be enrolled in an accredited educational institution and be sponsored by an ASIS member. Candidates also must be a relative of an ASIS member (son, daughter, spouse, grandparent, or grandchild) or be an ASIS member themselves. If you or someone in your family is attending school this year and would benefit from a noteworthy scholarship to offset the high cost of education, please consider applying for this valuable award.

Please note: A security-related field of study is not required to be eligible for this award.

In 2014, $9,000 from the Manning Scholarship Fund was awarded to worthy recipients. In both 2015 and 2016, $10,000 was awarded to worthy recipients (19 in 2015 and 23 recipients in 2016).

For information on previous recipients, please visit http://www.asis-boston.org/history.php

All Nominations will be reviewed by the ASIS John P. Manning Committee. Recipients selected to be awarded funds will be presented at the Annual Awards Night, tentatively scheduled for November 16, 2017.

To submit your scholarship application, please complete the form below by Friday, October 6, 2017.
