Each year the Michigan Safety Conference, through its’ scholarship program, provides financial assistance to students enrolled in occupational safety and health curriculums at colleges and universities in the State of Michigan.

Applicants are selected based on academic achievement, leadership, letters of recommendation and additional criteria. Scholarship recipients often become leaders in the fields of safety and health, and give back by serving as a volunteer of the Michigan Safety Conference.
