Each year, children or the spouse of a worker must cope with their loss after a workplace death. It can have a profound effect on a family's ability to finance higher education. The Workers' Memorial Scholarship fund, established by the 1991 Legislature at the request of the Oregon AFL-CIO, is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year.
Students must meet certain criteria to apply and can find more information at http://www.oregonstudentaid.gov (scholarship code 113 in the catalogue). The deadline for applications is March 1, 2014.
Private donations to the fund can be accepted, but are not solicited by Oregon OSHA. Please make checks payable to "DCBS Workers' Memorial Scholarship Account" and mail your donation to Oregon OSHA, c/o Melanie Mesaros, P.O. Box 14480, Salem, OR 97309.
