“IoPP is proud to recognize the packaging industry’s future young professionals,” says Jane Chase, IoPP Chair. “The IoPP scholarship program paves the way for the next step, a mentoring program that fosters the career development process and connects tomorrow’s leaders with those of today.”

The scholarships have been created to support packaging education and to raise awareness of packaging as a career choice. The scholarships are funded by founding supporters, including the Minnesota, Tejas and Chicago IoPP chapters and IoPP benefactor companies.

As an added bonus, the top 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 your career.
