Mississauga, ON, March 17, 2014 – The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) is pleased to announce the two scholarship recipients for 2014. Congratulations to Ms. Lisa Lowndes and Mr. Hassan Siddiqui both from Ryerson University’s Bachelor of Applied Science – Occupational Health and Safety Program. Ms. Lowndes and Mr. Siddiqui were selected out of a group of ten (10) eligible submissions and will each receive a $4,000 scholarship. All eligible submissions were reviewed and judged by the BCRSP’s Scholarship Review Committee.
The purpose of the scholarship program is to enable students to enter the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) profession in support of creating the healthiest and safest workplaces in the world, to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students in OHS, and to raise awareness of the CRSP certification amongst OHS students and faculty.
Awarded annually, the two (2) $4,000 national scholarships were made available to students enrolled, either full-time or part-time, in a two, three or four year OHS related program leading to an OHS certificate, diploma or degree at the undergraduate level. In addition to the cash scholarship of $4,000, a credit coupon will be issued in the name of each winner for the value of the CRSP Application Fee. This coupon is valid for a period of one year after a scholarship recipient meets the three-year experience eligibility requirement.
