Support ASSE Foundation’s Family Scholarship Fund

Although OSH professionals dedicate their careers to keeping workers safe and preventing fatal incidents, workplace tragedies still occur, affecting families across the country each year. The ASSE Foundation created the Family Scholarship Fund in 2013 to address the financial impact of the loss of a loved one and encourage continuing education.

Tristan Bainum applied for and received the scholarship, and it changed his life. His dad died in a workplace incident when he was 12. Today, Tristan attends Iowa Central, studying engineering design. “I know the feeling that I got after it was ok not to worry about how I was going to pay for school,” he says. “That feeling was amazing and I just wish that more kids could experience that.”

He wants OSH professionals and other to know that they can help. “One thing I can say to people who are thinking about donating. There are kids like me who you can help,” he says.
