The Melker Schörling Scholarship

Imagine jetting off to a country of your choice and getting paid for the privilege.

The Purpose

The knowledge and experience of our people is the foundation of Securitas. The Melker Schörling Scholarship offers our people the opportunity to develop professional knowledge and experience in an international setting.

Established in 1992, the Melker Schörling Scholarship was created when Melker Schörling left his position as President and CEO to become Chairman of the Board.

The purpose of the scholarship is to offer international training opportunities within a specific area/topic in a country where Securitas operates.

This could be you

Each year, four 'Everyday Heroes' from across the world enjoy the Melker Schörling Scholarship.

This is your chance to deepen your security knowledge by spending three to five days in your chosen country, studying what you want.

You'll fly home with fresh experience, ready to apply to your role and share with colleagues.

This opportunity is available for anyone on our frontline who has made an exceptional difference to customers and communities.
