Itasca, IL — The National Safety Council has announced a new scholarship for women seeking post-secondary education to pursue a career in safety or a related field.

The recipient of the Lorraine Pack Memorial Scholarship will receive a $2,000 tuition award and the opportunity to attend – at no cost – either the annual NSC Congress & Expo, the world’s largest annual gathering of safety professionals, or the Campbell Institute Symposium, where thought leaders from around the globe gather for an open exchange of forward-looking ideas and best practices.

“This scholarship is an opportunity for outstanding female students interested in safety, health and environmental concerns to pursue meaningful careers where they can make a difference,” Lorraine M. Martin, president and CEO of NSC, said in a Jan. 14 press release. “We strongly encourage all qualified candidates to apply and look forward to awarding future winners.”

Applications are due March 31. To be eligible, applicants must be an NSC student member.
