PhD Fellowship for Future Safety Educators
The American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation is committed to creating a vibrant future for the field of occupational safety and health. Toward that end, ASSE has created a PhD Fellowship opportunity in conjunction with Oregon State University (OSU) and West Virginia University (WVU). This fellowship program, which requires a commitment to teaching in occupational safety and health (OSH) academic programs, is intended to cultivate future educators of occupational safety and health and to produce a thread of evidence-based research in the economic and financial analysis of safety-related programs and interventions.
- Fellows at OSU’s PhD in Public Health (concentration in Environmental and Occupational Safety and Health) will be awarded funding of $18,000 a year for three years to cover tuition costs for the length of the program.
- Fellows attending WVU’s PhD in Occupational Safety and Health will receive a stipend of $18,000 a year for no more than four years, tuition waived.
