"Receiving the Michigan Safety Conference Scholarship was a great experience! I was not only awarded $2,000, I also was able to attend the Michigan Safety Conference and do some amazing networking. Through the scholarship, I was given a mentor, which led to my internship. The Michigan Safety Conference Scholarship has allowed me to meet many remarkable people in the field and get great career advice. "
