"Helping to ensure the safety and health of workers around the world is a top priority at ISEA. To do so, we need creative, bright new minds to join the industry and lead the next generations for innovation and benchmark standards," said Charles Johnson, ISEA President.
ISEA instituted the DKSS to encourage new generations to enter the Safety and Health profession, and to help defray educational costs to eligible candidates as they pursue a career in the field of environmental and occupational health and safety.
Samantha Kusters received the DKSS in 2018 and went on to the dean's list while excelling in the aerospace engineering program at the University of Florida.
Kusters commented, "Because of my family's financial background, paying for education has always been a struggle. However, this scholarship helped take some of the financial burden off my family and me. I would like to thank the DKSS Review Committee for all the time and effort they put into helping college students like me."
The annual scholarship in the amount of $2,500 is open to all college undergraduate students enrolled in majors geared toward a career in safety and health (such as, but not limited to, Environmental Science, Fire Protection, Health Physics, Industrial Engineering, Nursing, Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health & Safety), and who are currently registered as full-time students in North America. A full-time student is one who is carrying 12 credit hours per semester, trimester or quarter. Applicants must have at least one full year of study remaining in their degree program.
This scholarship is awarded based on academic and extra-curricular achievement and financial need, and the recipients are selected by an independent review panel unaffiliated with ISEA. Interested applicants can review the criteria and download an application form at https://safetyequipment.org/
