Hamilton, ON – If you know a student in an occupational health and safety program in a Canadian college or university who is working towards an occupational health and safety certificate, diploma or degree, he or she already has what it takes to qualify for a scholarship from the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety (CCOHS).
The Dick Martin Scholarship Award, an annual, national scholarship, is offered by the CCOHS to help foster interest and the pursuit of higher education in the field of occupational health and safety.
Two scholarships of $3,000 each will be awarded to a winning university and a winning college student.
To apply for the award, post-secondary students are invited to submit a 1,000- to 1,200-word essay on one of two topics related to occupational health and safety. Essays will be judged on the intellectual content, the practical and theoretical value and the presentation and style. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2014.
