ASSP Foundation Famiy Scholarship

The Family Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to assuage the hardship of families affected by a workplace tragedy. This scholarship, available to spouses and children who have lost a loved one in a workplace incident, provides educational funding to minimize the financial impact of their loss and encourage continuing education. As safety professionals continue to make a greater impact, fewer people will experience such tragedies, but until then we need to step up. We encourage you to share this program with anyone you know who may benefit from it.
