AIHF Seeks Scholarship Applications

The American Industrial Hygiene Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2008-2009 scholarships. Since its inception in 1982, AIHF has distributed more than $900,000 to more than 44 schools and universities and 356 students.

AIHF is a nonprofit organization established by the American Industrial Hygiene Association to award scholarships to students studying industrial hygiene and related disciplines. These scholarships are intended to enable talented students to complete their education and encourage the most promising scholars to enter the industrial hygiene profession.

Any student, full, or associate member of AIHA who is attending, or applying to, an ABET-accredited industrial hygiene graduate or undergraduate program, a NIOSH Educational Research Centers industrial hygiene program, a Council on Education for Public Health accredited program with occupational health emphasis, or a New York University student applying for the Dr. Morton Lippmann Endowed Scholarship is eligible to apply.

This year eligibility criteria were expanded to include five Canadian programs as well. For a list of eligible programs visit www.aiha.org/Content/Foundation/AIHFScholarshipProgram.htm. Students who complete the online application will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible. Students are evaluated on academic record, extracurricular activities, future goals as an industrial hygienist and potential for leadership in the industrial hygiene profession.

Funds are provided through contributions from AIHA members, individuals, corporations and local sections to the AIHF endowment fund. To apply for a scholarship or to see a list of scholarships offered, visit www.aiha.org/Content/Foundation/foundation.htm.

All scholarship applications must be postmarked by March 5, 2008. The 2008-2009 AIHF scholarships will be awarded at the 2008 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition (AIHce), May 31-June 5, 2008, in Minneapolis.
