Kyle B. Dotson Scholarship

The Kyle B. Dotson Scholarship was established by the Dotson family in 2007. All students meeting the AIHF general scholarship criteria are eligible for this scholarship.  

Introducing ​Kyle Dotson

Kyle Dotson’s safety, industrial hygiene and environmental career include senior management roles in international manufacturing, consulting, mining, and electric power industries. He currently serves as an independent management consultant and expert witness in matters of occupational safety, industrial hygiene and indoor environmental quality.
Dotson is a certified industrial hygienist, a certified safety professional and an American Academy of Environmental Engineers-certified environmental engineer. Dotson is also an AIHA Fellow. He has served on the AIHA Board of Directors, the AIHF Board of Trustees and on various AIHA technical committees.
This endowed scholarship was established through an initial donation from Kyle Dotson. The fund will increase in value over time through continuing donations from the Dotson family during his lifetime and through provisions in his will. This scholarship is Dotson’s way of giving back to the profession. It is his hope that by endowing this scholarship while living, rather than waiting to fund it from his estate, it might serve as a model for other professionals to contribute now to help ensure the future and viability of the industrial hygiene profession.
