On Thursday, Spencer Education Foundation, Inc. announced it established two grants for universities and colleges with risk management programs seeking to create a loss prevention course curriculum.
The grants, funded by FM Global, are two awards of up to $50,000 each for the development of undergraduate course modules and graduate loss prevention course curricula for students studying risk management.
"Risk management programs have a growing need for current and more extensive loss prevention material at both the undergraduate and graduate levels," says Donna L. Galer, chairwoman at Spencer Educational Foundation, Inc.
"We hope that these educational grants will enable academic institutions with risk management programs to focus on the value of engineering in loss prevention and better prepare students to meet the challenges of the organizations they will one day represent," says Shivan S. Subramaniam, chairman and CEO at FM Global.
Grant applications are due by Jan. 30, and will be awarded March 2009. For more information, please contact Angela Sabatino, administrative manager at Spencer Educational Foundation, Inc., at (212) 655-6223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
