The students selected as winners in the company's 27th annual Occupational Health and Safety Scholarship Program receive a $5,000 scholarship and attendance to the 2013 AIHce conference in Montreal, Canada.
A highlight of the annual American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo, which is about to get under way in downtown Montreal, is the presentation by the 3M Personal Safety Division of its annual scholarships to promising young EH&S students. The company announced May 14 the names of the four winners who have won $5,000 scholarships in its 27th annual Occupational Health and Safety Scholarship Program and also receive attendance to the conference.
The scholarship winners are James Dietrich of the University of Cincinnati; Pamela Dopart of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Christopher J. Fraser of the University of Toronto, Dalla Lana School of Public Health; and Megan Moore of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
The program supports outstanding students who are pursuing a graduate degree in occupational health and safety. The company's news release said the scholarship winners were selected on the basis of academic achievement, related experience, and professional goals and were chosen by a selection committee composed of 3M PSD management and 3M corporate industrial hygienists. "We are continually impressed with the quality of applicants and submissions each year," said Nicole Vars McCullough, Ph.D., CIH, the 3M Global Technical Service manager who won a scholarship in 1994. "The scholarship program supports graduate training and continues to build professionals in the area of occupational health and safety."
