Fund Details
2017 Academic Scholarship Program


The ASSE Foundation exists to provide programs that advance the safety profession. We exist because safety matters - for workers, for families, and for the future of safety.

The Academic Scholarship Program awards are for students majoring in occupational safety, health, and the environment.

If your degree is not an OSH degree, it is your responsibility to make the case in your student narrative for why your studies are relevant to our mission of guiding the safety profession forward.

In 2017 we will award more than $275,000 to OSH students and professionals through our scholarships and grants program.
  • You will be required to submit transcripts from every university you have attended.
  • You will be required to provide an academic letter of recommendation.

Deadline for submitting the application is December 1, 2016 by 11:59 p.m. EST.
