The scholarships cover all course and exam fees for retail loss-prevention professionals working to obtain LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified or Loss Prevention Certified certifications.

The company will award 10 qualification and 10 certification scholarships to U.S.-based professionals, and five certification scholarships to professionals based in Canada, according to the statement.
