The two recipients, Justin Turcotte (University of Victoria) and Shannon Clark (Mohawk College) will each be awarded $3,000. Additionally, their respective academic institutions will each receive $500.
Each year, the Dick Martin Scholarships are awarded to post-secondary students enrolled in a program leading to an occupational health and safety certificate, diploma, or degree from an accredited Canadian college or university. The scholarships are intended to support interest in and encourage the pursuit of careers in the field of occupational health and safety. Winners are selected by a panel of occupational health and safety technical specialists based on criteria that include submitting an essay on injury prevention or research on a specific hazard and risk.
“Congratulations to our Dick Martin Scholarship winners Justin and Shannon, it is gratifying to support those who represent the future of health and safety.”
