ASSE Foundation Announces New Doctoral Fellowship for Safety Educators

The American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation and Oregon State University have announced the establishment of a new doctoral fellowship program: “PhD Fellowship for Future Safety Educators.” ASSE says the program is designed to support and encourage future occupational safety and health educators and more evidence-based research in the economic and financial analysis of safety-related programs and interventions.

Successful candidates to the program must be accepted and enrolled in OSU’s Ph.D. program in public health, concentrating on safety, health and the environment. Fellowship recipients will then be given the opportunity to attend OSU tuition-free for three years.

To be considered for the program, students applicants must have completed a master’s degree in a relevant discipline, with an interest in pursuing a career in safety-related education. Accepted candidates who enter the fellowship program will be required to perform a number of research projects focusing on the business and economic analysis of safety. In addition, they will be required to teach at the collegiate level for three years after completing their degree.

“ASSE, the ASSE Foundation, and OSU have been working together for several months in order to make this program available to students,” said Anthony T. Veltri, Ph.D., OSU associate professor of Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) and fellowship program liaison to ASSE. “It was established to provide financial support to highly qualified applicants desiring to obtain a Ph.D. in occupational safety and health while developing teaching and research competencies and capabilities that put them in a position to pursue a career in higher education. The research conducted by students will be focused on making the business case for occupational safety and health.”

The application deadline for the fellowship is Dec. 1, 2009. The program will be open to two Ph.D. candidates admitted to OSU’s Ph.D. in public health program, concentrating on environment, safety, and health. In addition, applicants must be U.S. citizens and have proof of attendance at a higher education program in the United States. Individuals who are interested in donating toward the fellowship program should contact Mary Goranson, ASSE Foundation manager at 847-768-3412.
