Funding Available for Students through the Professional Training Opportunities Program

September 20, 2016

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).
