Growing A Safer Montana Awards 20 Scholarships To Students
Helena, MT (WorkersCompensation.com) - In 2017, Montana State Fund (MSF) proudly created the Growing a Safer Montana (GSM) program to support and foster a safer Montana through the next generation of safety leaders. Historically, Montana ranks among the highest in the nation in workplace accidents and fatalities. GSM aims to improve this standing through two pillars of the program. One pillar is providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) grants provided to Montana high school and middle school trades classes.
The second pillar of GSM provides scholarships for higher education to students entering Occupational Safety and Health/Industrial Hygiene or trades and industry careers. MSF is proud to announce the 2022 winners of the Growing a Safer Montana Scholarship:
