UPS Foundation's $35,000 Grant to ASSE Puts SH&E Scholarships Up for Grabs

The grant will be used to award six scholarships in the amount of $5,250 each in 2012 to students studying in the field of safety, health, and the environment (SH&E).

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation received a $35,000 grant from The UPS Foundation, the charitable arm of UPS. The grant will be used to award six scholarships in the amount of $5,250 each in 2012 to students studying in the field of safety, health, and the environment (SH&E).

Four scholarships will be awarded to a junior or senior year college student pursuing an undergraduate degree in SH&E, and two will be awarded to junior or senior year college SH&E students from a minority ethnic background. All recipients will have the opportunity to be recognized at ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference and Exposition, Safety 2012, June 3-6 in Denver.

Scholarship applicants must be full-time students pursuing a B.S. in occupational safety and health or a related field. Applicants must be members of ASSE, have a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 system, be in good academic standing, and be recommended by a safety faculty member. Students are encouraged to apply annually for scholarships from Sept. 1 to Dec. 1 of each year.

“UPS continues to be a leader in the support and growth of the ASSE Foundation,” said ASSE Foundation Chair Eddie Greer, CSP, OHST. “This grant helps develop future safety professionals who play a key role in preventing work injuries and illnesses.”

The American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation established by and in partnership with the American Society of Safety Engineers, 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.
