NSC Introduces Women in Safety Scholarship Program
The National Safety Council has launched a new scholarship program for women pursuing safety as a career. Nominations for the scholarships will open Nov. 1, 2017.
“Safety is more than a profession — it is a calling,” said NSC President and CEO Deborah A.P. Hersman. “We need to cultivate and encourage dedicated women professionals to pick up the mantel as 25 percent of safety specialists today consider retirement. This scholarship will create an opportunity for outstanding candidates to pursue their education and dedicate their careers to keeping each other safe.”
The Women in Safety Scholarship is for women studying safety in an accredited associate or undergraduate program. It is renewable annually for a maximum of four years, and the number given out with vary from year to year.
The application period for both scholarships will close in mid-January. For more information, click here.
