ASSP Foundation Accepting 2019 Scholarship, Grant Applications

"Our scholarship and grant program has helped hundreds of students and professionals advance their education and careers in a meaningful way," said ASSP Foundation Chair Linda M. Tapp, CSP. "Our donors have consistently supported the occupational safety and health profession by contributing awards that range from $500 to $15,000."

The American Society of Safety Professionals Foundation will accept scholarship and grant applications from Sept. 1 until Dec. 1 for its annual disbursement of financial awards in 2019. The society's announcement said more than $370,000 is available through nearly 100 awards to occupational safety and health students and professionals, "thanks to the generosity of corporate donors and the ASSP community."

Scholarships are available to undergraduate and graduate students, including full-time, part-time, and international students studying in the United States. Applicants must be enrolled in an occupational safety or a related degree program and have a grade point average of 3.0 for undergraduates and 3.5 for graduates. Professional education grants are available to established safety professionals looking to further their careers through certification, college coursework, conference registration, or similar learning opportunities.

"Our scholarship and grant program has helped hundreds of students and professionals advance their education and careers in a meaningful way," said ASSP Foundation Chair Linda M. Tapp, CSP. "Our donors have consistently supported the occupational safety and health profession by contributing awards that range from $500 to $15,000. Their involvement every year demonstrates that safety careers are vital in helping to protect workplaces everywhere."

ASSP said candidates must complete only one online application to be eligible for all available awards. Recipients are matched with the criteria set forth by the fund's donor. Those who are selected will be notified in April 2019.

"Your generosity has inspired me to help others, continue to work and study hard, and to eventually be able to help students reach their academic goals in the same way you are helping me," said Slippery Rock University student Makenzie Herbinko, who previously received a $10,000 Bechtel Corporation Impact Scholarship to study safety management. She expects to graduate in 2019.
