As part of our commitment to promoting health and safety at our work sites and in our communities, the LAOSHC offers annual scholarships for students pursuing a degree in a health or safety related field. This may include Occupational Safety, Occupational/Physical Therapy, Nursing, Police Department, Fire Department, or other related fields.

As health and safety professionals in the Greater La Crosse Area, we offer scholarship opportunities to students that are likely to work as a health or safety professional in our communities.  

In addition, scholarships are available to students from counties within our membership area that are seeking a health or safety related degree at other colleges / universities. This includes: Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau, and Vernon counties in Wisconsin and Houston county in Minnesota.

Scholarships are distributed annually in the spring.

The deadline for scholarships is April 1st. Applications will be accepted November - March. Scholarships will be awarded at the May Council membership meeting.

Scholarship applications are available via our council website (see below).
