About the Daniel K. Shipp Scholarship

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. Mr. Shipp established ISEA as the “Voice of the Safety Equipment Industry.” He skillfully melded the hard work of ISEA members, to develop and implement the association’s benchmark of standards making, government relations and knowledge-sharing strategies. The positive impact on the industry is undeniable, and the health and life-saving impact for workers is inspirational.  Mr. Shipp has rightfully established himself as a pillar of this industry.

The annual scholarship in the amount of $2,500 is open to all college undergraduate students preferably enrolled in majors geared toward a Safety and Health career, students who share our vision to protect others.

This scholarship is awarded annually, based on academic and extra-curricular achievement and financial need, and the recipients are selected by an independent review panel unaffiliated with the ISEA. Interested applicants can download an application form, information and the selection criteria from the links below in the “Scholarship Resources” section.
