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. The next conference will be in Calgary on March 8 & 9, 2018.

Nominations for the 2018 Gary Wagar Scholarship are now open. For the 2018 HSA Gary Wagar Scholarship, click here. You will need to fill out the form using Adobe Reader.

In this, the ACSA’s 30th anniversary year, we will be announcing some exciting developments for our annual conference and awards gala.
