ICON Scholarship Program

The ICON Academy Scholarship

The ICON Academy Scholarship program is an achievement based program available for potential course attendees who are interested in the Close Protection Programs offered by ICON. The program was originally made possible as a result of a private philanthropic grant from an existing ICON client who believes in the value of quality training and continuing education.  Four scholarships will be awarded annually based on predetermined criteria and judged by an anonymous selection committee.  Recipients of the scholarships will receive their tuition paid in full for the 5-day ICON CPC Course.
