IoPP Packaging Education Scholarship Fund

IoPP is pleased to offer six academic scholarships to exceptional students headed for careers in the packaging field. Applications are now being accepted!

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!
