James Keogh Memorial Scholarship Fund for APHA 2024

The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Section of APHA established the James P. Keogh Memorial Scholarship Fund in 1999 to promote and strengthen the participation of students and union representatives and members in the OHS Section of APHA. The Fund recognizes the need to promote the involvement of workers and new health and safety professionals in order to make our workplaces and communities healthy and safe. The scholarship fund was established to honor the enormous contribution Dr. James (Jim) Keogh made to health and safety not only through his own considerable body of work, but also with his generosity as a mentor, teacher and colleague nurturing and influencing the work of others. James Keough reshaped occupational health and safety by bringing clinical compassion to the workers.

The Scholarship fund helps students and workers to participate in the annual APHA meeting by paying the APHA annual meeting registration fee, a one-year APHA membership and a $300 stipend for conference-related expenses to scholarship awardees. Applicants will be expected to attend the following APHA annual meeting sessions of the OHS Section: at least one section business meeting, two research sessions (panel, round table, or poster) and the section’s awards ceremony on Oct. 29 at noon.

To obtain an application, contact Kathy Kirkland or Kerri Wizner. Applications are due July 15, 2024.
