Creative Safety Supply, an Oregon-based retailer of safety products for the workplace, is offering an annual scholarship for students pursuing higher education in any field at an accredited college, university, or vocational school in the United States.
Creative Safety Supply was founded to provide the best industrial safety, Lean and 5S products for businesses so they can improve the safety and efficiency of their facilities. To that end, Creative Safety Supply developed industrial floor marking tape and industrial label printers to help safety managers, facility managers, and business owners achieve their goals, while promoting useful methodologies such as gemba, kaizen, and the Toyota Production System. We work to find creative solutions to challenging or unique workplace problems and value the importance of creativity in all endeavors. That’s why we’re awarding a scholarship to a student in good academic standing who has used creative thinking to succeed in his/her academic or personal life.
$1,000. This is a one-time scholarship that will be awarded directly to the student’s chosen college, university, or vocational school.
We run two scholarship competitions each year. The first deadline is July 15 and the second is December 15.

The scholarship award will subsequently be paid to the recipient’s school in accordance with that school’s scholarship guidelines.
