IoPP Packaging Education Scholarship Fund

Career starting opportunities

Through PepsiCo R&D, the Contract Packaging Association and IoPP Benefactor, Chapter and Technical Committee support, these scholarships have been created to elevate packaging education by raising 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!
