How to Apply

This prestigious scholarship will be awarded to one graduate of the basic security guard training program each month. Nominations for the scholarship must be submitted from managers of security guards who have successfully completed basic security training and are now employed in a security position. The manager should include the name of the nominee and explain why they are being nominated as an outstanding, new professional in security services.

Not only will you have a portion of your student expenses paid for through the scholarship, but you will also be given recognition in the industry – setting you apart from your competition as an up-and-coming security professional.

When you earn your scholarship, we’ll publish your professional profile on our website and marketing materials. We will highlight your achievements and help you get exposure as you build your career in private security. There’s no better testament to your qualifications than public recognition.

Valued at $199.99, the scholarship will be awarded to 12 eligible graduates each year. The Allan Dyburgh Scholarship is the only educational award in the industry that recognizes the achievements of new security guards.

About the Allan Dryburgh Scholarship Fund

The Allan Dryburgh Scholarship fund recognizes the importance and the legacy of a founder in professional security guard training.

William Allan Dryburgh (Allan) was a lifelong resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a successful career as a professional CFL football referee. Allan later launched a security guard business, which he expanded to almost every province in Canada.

Dryburgh authored the foundational security guard curriculum adopted by provincial governments across the country and is one of the most recognized names in the security industry. Since 2007, his courses have remained as the template for security guard licensing training.

Dryburgh’s exceptional work advanced the professionalism of security services and elevated the national industry. He passed away in 2015. In honour of his achievements, Canadian Academy of Guard Training is awarding promising security service workers across Canada – in hopes of carrying on his work through the next generation of security professionals.
