Three college students have been selected to receive a 2010 Bechtel Group Foundation Scholarship for Safety & Health. The scholarships, each worth $4,000, were awarded to students selected by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation.

The Bechtel scholarships are given annually by the ASSE Foundation to undergraduate students who plan to pursue careers in construction safety and health.  The students must have grade point averages of at least 3.0, be recommended by a safety faculty member, and be a member of ASSE. This year’s scholarship recipients are:

  • Ryan Cruth, a Central Washington University student majoring in Safety & Health Management
  • Jacob Hagen, a Murray State University student majoring in Occupational Safety & Health
  • Brett Welter, a Murray State University student majoring in Occupational Safety & Health

“Safety is at the core of everything we do at Bechtel, and we believe it is important to help support students committed to advancing safety in the engineering field,” says Kevin Berg, Bechtel’s manager of Environmental, Safety & Health. “Bechtel is proud to be a part of the ASSE Foundation Scholarship program, and we congratulate each of this year’s scholarship recipients.”

The Bechtel Group Foundation has donated to the ASSE Foundation scholarship fund since 2002. The students will be presented with their scholarships during the ASSE annual convention in June.
