ASSE Scholarships and Grants - Deadline 1 December 2014

In 2015 the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation will award more than $275,000 to occupational safety and health (OS&H) students and professionals through its scholarships and grants program.

The ASSE Foundation exists to provide programs that advance the safety profession because safety matters—for workers, for families, and for the future of our world. The awards are for students majoring in occupational safety, health, and the environment.

If students' degrees are not OS&H degrees, it is their responsibility to make the case in their student narrative for why their studies are relevant to the ASSE mission of guiding the safety profession forward.

Review the Frequently Asked Questions before filling out the application. Applicants will be required to:

  • Submit transcripts from every university they have attended.
  • Provide an academic letter of recommendation.
  • Fill out a short answer section.
  • Have a 3.0 undergraduate GPA and (if applicable) a 3.5 graduate GPA.

The deadline for submitting the application is 1 December 2014 by 11:30 p.m.

All applications will be reviewed by the ASSE Foundation Scholarship Award & Selection Committee. Award recipient will be notified and announced on the ASSE Foundation's website in April 2015. There is more information on the program on the ASSE Foundation website.
