Fact: the current economy has affected many schools’ endowment funds, resulting in decreased support of student scholarships. 

But here’s the good news: TAPPI has scholarships to offer. You have a chance to apply for some green (funds to pay tuition, etc.) to fund a satisfying green career. The scholarships are available for graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in the pulp, paper, converting, and packaging industries.  There are two general types of scholarships:

1- TAPPI Division scholarships  Review the section “How do I apply?”
2- William L. Cullison Memorial Scholarship for details  

What this message means to you:

- If you’re a student, here is a great way to apply for financial assistance for the 2012 – 2013 school year.  Note that requirements will vary according to scholarship source so you’ll need to check the qualifications carefully. A reference document is available to guide you. 

The deadline to apply for Technical Division scholarships is February 15, 2012; the deadline for the Cullison scholarship is May 1, 2012.  Mark your calendar now to allow yourself time to create an application that reflects the hard work you’ve been investing in your career.

- If you are affiliated with a college or university, share this with your students or other staffers who work with students.  They’ll be glad you did!
