Since 1982, AIHF has distributed over $2 million in scholarship funds to students pursuing a degree in industrial hygiene and/or occupational and environmental health and safety. These scholarships have enabled talented students to complete their education and have encouraged the most promising scholars to enter and remain in the industrial hygiene profession.
Administration of AIHF is conducted through its Board of Trustees, who are elected members and serve on a volunteer basis only. Additionally, staff members of the American Industrial Hygiene Foundation are compensated through a gift-in-kind donation from the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).
The AIHF is exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the AIHF are tax-deductible, as provided by law.
For more information about AIHF, please contact Thursa La, Manager, AIHF.
I support the Foundation for two reasons. The first is charitable in that I want to give back to the profession that has provided me a very rewarding career. The second is I want to be able to find qualified and motivated hygienists to hire and the Foundation scholarships help keep talent entering the profession."
