We are committed to promoting security education in the Twin Cities. As part of this goal, we want to support and encourage new skilled security professionals, and do this in part through direct financial scholarships of upcoming professionals.  We also offer volunteering, mentorship, and networking opportunities to upcoming professionals to jump-start their careers and further develop their knowledge.  Free or subsidized membership is also available for some students.  Please contact for more details.
