The Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) is pleased to announce the inclusion of IoPP Platinum Benefactor PepsiCo R&D's $5000 Scholarship as part of the Institute's growing Packaging Education Scholarship Fund program.
PepsiCo R&D's scholarship
PepsiCo R&D's Scholarship will be awarded to the top packaging student scholarship fund applicant. PepsiCo's contribution signifies a commitment to the packaging industry, focused on educational development leading to the professional success of students and their packaging careers.
IoPP's continuing educational support
IoPP will also offer four additional $2,500 academic scholarships for 2014-2015 to recognize exceptional college students headed for a career in packaging.
Career starting opportunity!
Through IoPP Benefactor, Chapter and Technical Committee support, the scholarships have been created to elevate packaging education and to raise awareness of packaging as a career choice.
As an added bonus, the talent identified through this program will be shared with IoPP Benefactor companies as a recruiting tool for their organizations. This could be that post-graduation foot in the door that jump-starts careers!
All supporting application materials must be completed and postmarked no later than April 4, 2014. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Scholarship recipients will be recognized at an IoPP-hosted special event dinner in late spring.
