In 1915, thirty enterprising papermakers gathered together determined to form a new technical arm of the American Paper & Pulp Association (APPA). Their idea was to gather and disseminate information concerning matters which have to do with production. This forward thinking group wanted to create a forum where information could be channeled and ideas could be exchanged. In less than a year, TAPPI was born and more than 100 years later, their formula for success continues to work.
Each year, TAPPI is proud to offer multiple scholarship opportunities to graduate and undergraduate students in the pulp, paper, packaging and related industries. TAPPI encourages students to apply for all of the scholarships for which they may qualify. Scholarship application requirements vary by division and a general information form must also be completed. All scholarship winners will have to complete a W9 form. Individual scholarship criteria varies.
