The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) has opened up $350,000 in scholarship and grant money for its annual disbursement of financial awards.
Students interested in pursuing occupational health and safety careers may apply between Sept. 1 and Dec. 1 for these awards, which were made possible through the organization’s corporate donors as well as the ASSE community.
“Our scholarship and grant program has always been a great opportunity for students and professionals to advance their education and careers,” said ASSE Foundation Chair David T. Crowley, CSP, CHMM, STS in a statement. “Our donors have been terrific at supporting the occupational safety and health profession by providing such valuable resources. It’s more proof that safety matters.”
Graduate and undergraduate students including full-time, part-time and international students studying in the United States are eligible for awards.
Applicants must be enrolled in an occupational safety or related degree program and have a grade point average of 3.0 for undergraduates and 3.5 for graduates. In addition, professional education grants are available to established safety professionals looking to further their careers through certification, college coursework, conference registration, or similar ventures.
Applications must be completed online, and candidates complete only a single form to be eligible for all available awards. Winners will be notified in April. Recipients are matched with the criteria set forth by the fund’s donor, according to the ASSE Foundation.
