CCOHS is now accepting entries for the 2010-11 Dick Martin Scholarship Award. Awarded annually, this $3000 national scholarship is available to any student enrolled, either full-time or part-time, in an occupational health and safety related course or program leading to an occupational health and safety certificate, diploma or degree at an accredited college or university in Canada. Programs include mine safety, occupational or industrial health and safety, industrial hygiene, safety management or other related safety degree program.
The CCOHS Council of Governors established this occupational health and safety scholarship fund in 2002 in the memory of Dick Martin, a tireless health and safety advocate and a pioneer of workplace health and safety in Canada.
To apply for the award, post secondary students are invited to submit a 1000-1200 word essay on a topic that best describes their aspirations in the field of occupational health and safety. Entries will be judged on their knowledge of the subject matter, their understanding of the principles and values of Dick Martin, and their understanding of the role of CCOHS.
Deadline for Entries: 5:00 pm, January 31 (each year)
