Packaging World magazine and packaging converter Printpack, Inc.  will recognize an aspiring packaging professional with the 2012 Future Leaders in Packaging Scholarship.

Established this year to support and foster packaging education, the $2500 educational scholarship will be presented to a promising undergraduate student who is pursuing a Packaging Science degree from Clemson University.

The Future Leaders in Packaging Scholarship has been developed in conjunction with Packaging World's Leadership in Packaging program, a community-based print and online program that enables suppliers to promote their innovation and commitment to the packaging community.

“Packaging World has been a long time supporter of packaging education, via various association initiatives and editorially,” says Packaging World Publisher Joe Angel. “We’re very excited to add this annual scholarship to our Leadership in Packaging program, and honored to co-sponsor the 2012 award with Printpack.”

Based on Printpack’s participation in the 2011 Leadership in Packaging program and their outstanding effort to promote voter participation, they were given the honor of choosing the packaging school to receive this year’s scholarship and are being named with Packaging World as the donor of the scholarship.
