Guardian has always been dedicated to making people’s lives and homes safer and easier. Along with this mission, we’ve decided to do something new for students who are furthering their education in security, smart home and safety fields. As a result, we’ve announced the First Annual Guardian Protection Services Scholarship, awarding 10 scholarships of $1,001 to students (1 national scholarship and 9 state scholarships).
Who Is This Scholarship For?
The Guardian scholarship is open to high school seniors or current college students in the United States who are planning to study field that promotes safety, protection, security, technology, home and building automation, IoT, or cybersecurity.
Examples of careers/ fields of study that apply:
- Law enforcement practitioner

- IoT architect
- HVAC controls technician.
Residents of the following states will be entered to win the scholarships designated for their state.
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
Residents of the other 41 states can still win the national scholarship.
How Can I Enter?
Since Guardian uses technology to help promote safer, smarter homes, we wanted to use technology to make a unique scholarship. To apply for the Guardian Scholarship, we’re asking students to use the Instagram “Stories” feature to tell a digital story about the ways the technology in their lives could be even smarter than it is today.
We know smart technology is a part of our home from smart homes and computers, to voice control devices and even smart home security, but there’s a lot of potential out there! As a company that’s always looking to the future, we want to see the insight of future thinkers in the field. As far off as these ideas may be, we know that you can’t innovate without wild, big ideas.
There are some technical aspects to using Instagram “Stories” to enter a scholarship, so we’ve also provided some technical directions and Frequently Asked Questions in our post “How To Use Instagram Stories To Enter the Guardian Protection Services Annual Scholarship.”
The full rules can be found here.
What is the timeline on the scholarship?
The Guardian Protection Services Annual Scholarship starts May 2018 and ends November 30, 2018. We will let the winners know that they’ve won within six weeks after the deadline.
What If I Have Questions?
If you or a student in your life is considering entering the scholarship, make sure that you read the Official Entry Rules and the FAQs post to see if you have any questions. Questions can be asked through Instagram Direct Messaging (DM) to Guardian’s Official Instagram page @guardianprotection.
