3M Awards 2017 OHS Scholarships
The three winners were honored during a June 4 reception at the AIHce conference.
SEATTLE -- 3M hosted a reception June 4 in honor of the three recipients of its 2017 Occupational Health and Safety Scholarships. The program, in its 31st year, awarded three $5,000 scholarships to outstanding students in OSH graduate programs in the United States or Canada who intend to pursue a career in the occupational health and safety profession.
The three 2017 winners are Emmanuel Zervoudakis, a graduate student at the University of Michigan; Elise Lagerstrom, who is pursuing her Ph.D. in environmental health and ergonomics at Colorado State University; and Jennifer Hudson, who is working toward her master of science degree in the Occupational and Environmental Hygiene Program at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Hudson said during the reception that her scholarship is much appreciated and she’s grateful for the company’s support of her studies. She is working a summer internship this year at The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and intends to become a Certified Industrial Hygienist, she said.
3M’s Personal Safety Division accepted applications for this year’s scholarships in March 2017. The winners were chosen by a selection committee comprised of 3M occupational
health and safety professionals on the basis of academic achievement, related work experience, and professional goals.
