ASSP Can Help Fund Your Education

ASSP FoundationSince 1990, the ASSP Foundation has awarded millions of dollars in scholarships to students beginning their studies in occupational safety seeking to continue their education. We offer more than 100 awards each year, ranging from $500 to $15,000 each. Scholarships are available to students pursuing occupational safety and health (OSH) and closely related degrees both at the undergraduate and graduate level.
