The Michigan Industrial Hygiene Society Merit Scholarship was established in 2006 by the Michigan Industrial Hygiene Society (MIHS).

The MIHS was founded in 1937 by leaders of the profession, including Gordon Herrold, William Fredrick, Stuart Meek, Carey P. McCord, William T. Krebs, William Bradley, William Witheridge, L.B. Case, and Vincent J. Castrop, several of whom became presidents of AIHA after it was organized in 1938. The MIHS became AIHA’s first local section.

The Michigan Industrial Hygiene Society Merit Scholarship continues MIHS’s legacy of support for the industrial hygiene profession.
