Over the past 30 years, the American Industrial Hygiene Foundation (AIHF) has awarded more than 855 scholarships totaling nearly $2.2 million to students dedicated to studying industrial hygiene and/or occupational and environmental health safety. Building upon this success, the AIHF Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that scholarship applications for 2022 - 2023 are now being accepted until February 13, 2023.


All full or part time students who will be enrolled in one of the following programs at the start of the Fall 2023 semester are eligible to apply:
  • A graduate or undergraduate degree program that is fully ABET-accredited under the Industrial Hygiene or Similarly Named Program Criteria or under the Environmental, Health, and Safety Program Criteria.
  • A graduate public health degree program fully accredited by CEPH, with a program concentration in Environment Health with a focus in Industrial Hygiene or Occupational Health.
  • An Industrial Hygiene or similar named program offered at a NIOSH ERC or a NIOSH Training Project Grant in Industrial Hygiene.
  • An industrial hygiene or similarly named program at one of the following Canadian institutions: McGill University, University of British Columbia, Universite de Montreal, Universite du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres, or University of Toronto.
  • The M.S. in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene program at New York University (NYU). Only NYU students are eligible for the Dr. Morton Lippmann Scholarship.
Students who are not enrolled in any of the listed programs above are still eligible to apply for an AIHF Scholarship. However, a school administrator must first complete a separate application form justifying why their program/students should be considered for an AIHF scholarship. The deadline to submit the school application form is January 4, 2023.


The deadline to submit all AIHF application materials is February 13, 2023. All materials must be completed and answered in full. Students who submit a completed application will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.


The AIHF Scholarship Advisory Committee will begin its independent review process in February 2023. All applicants will be notified by mid-April of the committee’s decision. All scholarship funds will be distributed in the fall of 2023, and all recipients will be recognized publicly at the AIHce EXP 2023, May 22 – 24 in Phoenix, Arizona.
