HAMILTON, ONT. — Women enrolled in post-secondary education pursuing careers in the field of occupational health and safety are being invited to apply for the Chad Bradley Scholarship Award.
The award was established by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) Council of Governors to honour the memory of former governor Catherine (Chad) Bradley and pay tribute to her efforts as a leader in health and safety. The council hopes the scholarship will inspire and encourage women across Canada to pursue careers in the male-dominated occupational health and safety field, states a release.
The $3,000 scholarship is open to women enrolled in either a full or part-time program leading to an occupational health and safety designation from an accredited college or university in Canada, adds the release.
Candidates are encouraged to apply online and will be required to submit a 500 to 800 word essay detailing why they are pursuing their education in occupational health and safety; their motivation and inspiration; what and how they expect to contribute to the field and/or safe work; and other achievements and activities that demonstrate a commitment to and involvement in their community, workplace, or school.
Essays and applications submitted will be evaluated by a panel of judges representing labour, government, employers and comprised of members of the CCOHS Council of Governors and the president and CEO of CCOHS.
The entry deadline for the Chad Bradley Scholarship Award is Aug. 31 at 11:59 p.m. EST and winners will be announced in the fall of 2020. For more information visit www.ccohs.ca/scholarships/.
