Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety Provides Scholarship for Women in Safety
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) is inviting women enrolled in post-secondary education who are pursuing careers in the field of occupational health and safety to apply for the Chad Bradley Scholarship Award.
CCOHS announced the Chad Bradley Scholarship Award, established in the memory of former governor Catherine (Chad) Bradley, to inspire and encourage women across Canada to pursue careers in the male-dominated occupational health and safety field.
The $3,000 scholarship is “open to women enrolled in either a full or part-time program leading to an occupational health and safety designation from an accredited college or university in Canada. Candidates are encouraged to apply online and must submit a 500-800 word essay on why they are pursuing their education in the occupational health and safety field; their motivation or inspiration; what and how they expect to contribute to the field and/or safe work; and other achievements and activities that demonstrate a commitment to and involvement in their community, workplace or school.”
The entry deadline for the Chad Bradley Scholarship is August 31, 2020 at 11:59p.m. EST, and winners will be announced in the Fall of 2020. More information can be found at https://www.ccohs.ca/scholarships/.
