College Students: Apply Now for TAPPI Scholarships

Every year, TAPPI offers multiple scholarship opportunities to graduate and undergraduate students in the pulp, paper, packaging and related industries. For the 2023-2024 academic year, the offerings include the $4,000 William L. Cullison Scholarship and several Technical Division Scholarships that total more than $50,000. Applications are due February 15, 2023.

TAPPI’s new $1,000 TAPPI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship was established in support of underrepresented populations which include, but are not limited to African American, Native American, Hispanic, and Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, and People with disabilities. TAPPI plans to award three $1,000 scholarships annually.

Apply for all of the scholarships for which you qualify. Some of the 2022-2023 recipients received more than one TAPPI scholarship.

Now’s a great time to start lining up those letters of recommendation, too. Scholarship application requirements vary and require letters of recommendation. Don’t wait until the last minute to ask your co-op and internship supervisors, professors and advisors for their support.
