Scholarship Description
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation is happy to offer the ASSE Scholarships and Grants for both US and Non-US students.

The American Society of Safety Engineers exists to provide programs that advance the safety profession. It exists because safety matters - for workers, for families, and for the future of our world. The ASSE awards are for students majoring in occupational safety, health, and the environment.
