Liberty Mutual Donates to ASSE Foundation
March 26, 2009

In its continued support of safety, health and environmental education and research, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation recently announced two generous donations from Liberty Mutual Group totaling $45,000, $15,000 from the Liberty Mutual Foundation to fund scholarships and $30,000 from the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety (LMRIS) to fund the safety research fellowship program. The $15,000 donation from Liberty Mutual Foundation will fund the Liberty Mutual scholarship program, which provides two $3,000 scholarships each year. Scholarship recipients will be announced in early April. In addition, recipients will be given the opportunity to attend ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference (PDC) ‘Safety 2009’ to be held in San Antonio, Texas on June 28th — July 1st, 2009.

The $30,000 donation from the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety (LMRIS) will fund two fellowships at the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. LMRIS fellows will spend four to six weeks during the summer of 2009 at the safety institute, arranged between the fellow and the director of LMRIS after the awarding of the fellowship. The goals of the Liberty Mutual Safety Research Fellowship Program are to encourage research activity in the field of safety; to familiarize graduate students, faculty members and other researchers with current research projects and up-to-date research models and applications to expand the body of knowledge; to stimulate and enhance graduate students, faculty members and other researchers’ understanding of safety research; to provide a forum for linking safety professionals, industry needs, and quality research programs; and to lay the groundwork for graduate students and faculty members to pursue safety/health applied research projects of their choice.
