NSC Scholarship Program
Answering the call to promote the profession, National Safety Council is helping grow engagement with students and student members — in part through the award of travel grants, cash scholarships or tuition coverage for NSC Advanced Safety Certificate eligible courses.
Awarded for the first time in 2018, the Women in Safety Scholarship provides a renewable scholarship for women studying safety in the workplace. Any woman enrolled in a post-secondary program is eligible. Learn more about the award.
The NSC Construction & Utilities Division provides a scholarship each year in honor of Billy D. Young, a founder of the division. Learn more about the award.
Lorraine Pack inspired those around her to care for each other’s safety and protect the environment in which we live and work. She participated in Campbell Institute events and embraced the Institute’s focus on solving global environmental, health and safety challenges through innovation and research. Lorraine mentored women of all ages on what it takes to be an EHS professional, the importance of connecting with operational leaders, and inspiring employees to improve stewardship and lead with EHS. The Lorraine Pack Memorial Scholarship Fund, established by Laura Fiffick, Brittany Westphal and other generous donors, allows Lorraine's legacy to live on by inspiring young women to pursue careers in the EHS field.
