2018 Gary Wagar Scholarship

UA-COLOURThe University of Alberta (U of A) and the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) have established a scholarship program in honour of former ACSA Executive Director Gary Wagar. The goal of this partnership is to encourage and support students who wish to further their careers in the health and safety profession.

These two $1000 scholarships are presented to individuals who have attained the National Construction Safety Officer (NCSO) or Health & Safety Administrator (HSA) designation through the ACSA, and allow recipients to continue their professional development in the Occupational Health & Safety Certificate program at the U of A. The winners also receive a complimentary registration to the ACSA’s annual conference.
