Vernon E. Rose Endowed Scholarship

In 1978, Dr. Vernon Rose joined the fledgling UAB School of Public Health.  He was instrumental in founding the Deep South Center for Occupational Safety and Health and served as its first director.  Under his leadership as both department chair for environmental health sciences and center director, he put together a team of faculty and staff who worked with him to create one of the premiere industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety programs in the nation.  Upon Dr. Rose’s retirement from UAB in 1998, alumni, colleagues and friends established the School’s first named scholarship in his honor.  The Vernon E. Rose Endowed Scholarship provides support to students enrolled in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences Industrial Hygiene Program.
