The ISEA Scholarship Fund has been established by the International Safety Equipment Association to recognize and encourage student achievement and leadership.  It supports two scholarship programs:

  • The Lincoln C. Bailey Memorial Scholarship was established in 1989 to honor the memory of Mr. Bailey, an industry leader who expressed strong interest in education throughout his lengthy career. The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize and financially assist talented young people in achieving their fullest potential. This scholarship is awarded each year to a deserving student who is about to enter his/her junior or senior year at an accred­ited college or university taking courses leading to a bachelor’s degree.  Note: Eligible applicants are the children of employees of ISEA member companies.
  • The Daniel K. Shipp Scholarship was created in 2017 to recognize the contribution that Mr. Shipp has made to ISEA and the safety and health of American workers during his 25 years as President of ISEA.   This scholarship is awarded annually to a student in an accredited college or university, pursuing a baccalaureate degree in occupational safety, industrial hygiene or a related field.

The scholarship awards are based on academic and extra-curricular achievement and financial need, and the recipients are selected by independent review panels unaffiliated with the ISEA. The ISEA Scholarship Fund is supported by tax-deductible contributions from individuals and organizations, and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) exempt organization.
