Students Awarded Bechtel Safety Scholarship

16 May 2011 FREDERICK, Maryland

Three college students have been chosen by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) to receive scholarships funded by the Bechtel Group Foundation.

The $4,000 scholarships are given annually 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:

  • Luke Welch, a Murray State University student majoring in Occupational Safety & Health 
  • Brett Welter, a Murray State University student majoring in Occupational Safety & Health (He also received the 2010 scholarship)
  • Joselynn Neary, a Montana Tech student majoring in Occupational Safety & Health.

Safety is a core value in Bechtel and we believe that it is important to support students who are committed to environmental, safety and health studies,” says Donn Grimm, Bechtel’s manager of Environmental, Safety & Health.  “Bechtel is proud of its continuing participation in the ASSE Foundation scholarship program.  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.
