Since 1990, ASSP Foundation has awarded scholarships and professional education grants to students and professionals seeking to start or continue their education in OSH. In a recent video, Jesus Lozano, a 2018 UPS Diversity Scholarship recipient, shares what the award and the ASSP Foundation mean to him.
“I will be the first in my family to graduate from college. My family lives well beyond the poverty line, and we have lived in neighborhoods where all you see is drugs, gangs and violence. It is very challenging to have inspirations when you do not know anyone who knows the college process. The award has confirmed by belief in myself,” Lozano shares. “My purpose is to give to my community and help those people in poverty. I know how it feels not having food or money for new clothes. I will never forget this blessing.”
Applications for scholarships and grants are accepted online through Dec. 1, 2018. Only a single application must be filled out to be eligible for all available awards.
