Bechtel Group's $10K Donation to ASSE Puts OHS Scholarships Up for Grabs

The American Society of Safety Engineers announced the availability in 2010 of three $4,000 undergraduate scholarships for students pursuing degrees in occupational safety and health, thanks to the Bechtel Group Foundation's recent donation of $10,000 to the eponymous scholarship within the ASSE Foundation's scholarship program. Bechtel is a major provider of construction, engineering, and project management services.

According to the ASSE Foundation, priority to receive the "Bechtel Group Foundation Scholarship for Safety & Health" will be given to students studying safety and health with an emphasis in construction safety attending Murray State in Murray, Ky., Montana Tech in Butte, Mo., and Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Wash.

"We want to thank the Bechtel Group Foundation for their continued support of ASSE Foundation's scholarship program," said ASSE Foundation Chair Eddie Greer, CSP, OHST. "While many companies and organizations are cutting costs in this economy, we are grateful that Bechtel Group continues to place value on the education of future safety professionals and provides the necessary funding to make needed scholarships available to students."

Students who apply for the ASSE Foundation 2010 scholarship program by Dec. 1, 2009, will be considered for the Bechtel Group Foundation Scholarship for Safety & Health. Scholarship recipients will be announced in April 2010. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be enrolled full-time (12 hours or more per semester) and pursuing an undergraduate degree in occupational safety and health or a closely related field, preferably with an emphasis on construction safety.

The ASSE Foundation, established by and in partnership with ASSE, generates funding and provides resources for scholarship, applied research, academic accreditation, and related academic initiatives in order to advance the safety, health, and environmental profession.
