The University of Washington's Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety has new grant funding available for students in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska through the Professional Training Opportunities Program (PTOP).
Undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral, and associate's degree seeking students from any field are eligible for grant funding to work on a project or activity that addresses occupational health and safety issues. This means health and/or safety issues in the workplace or for working populations. Since worker health is an interdisciplinary field, students from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to apply (e.g. social work, engineering, public health, nursing, construction safety, kinesiology, medicine, toxicology, environmental studies, human physiology, chemistry, labor studies, human factors/ ergonomics).
The PTOP 2016 Request for Applications (RFA) has been published. All specific information relating to PTOP grants is included in the RFA, including supporting material requirements. The application deadline is December 1, 2016.
These documents are posted on the Northwest Center website.
