UMPPF offers scholarship opportunity to aspiring engineers
University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation engineering scholarship for aspiring engineers
Each year, over 100 students are awarded the UMPPF Engineering Scholarship – an amazing opportunity for any aspiring engineer, both in-state and out-of-state, that has an interest in the pulp and paper industry. Mid-South’s own Walter Goodine, Director of Operations, was a recipient of this scholarship and now sits on the UMPPF committee to help advance the industry.
One of the ways UMPPF supports students is by providing full or partial tuition scholarships to aspiring chemical, civil, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering as well as electrical and mechanical engineering technology students enrolled at the University of Maine with an interest in the paper industry.
They look for motivated students with excellent grades as well as communication and leadership skills. Scholarship recipients must achieve a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA and demonstrate a continued interest and commitment in pursuing a career in the pulp and paper industry by participating in:
● Chinn Management Seminars
● Student Organization membership
● Co-op job or internships after the sophomore year of study
Additional details are available when scholarship is awarded. Scholarships are renewed annually based on a student’s ability to meet the above requirements.
If you are currently a senior in high school and interested in applying, please complete and submit the online application form and other requested documents at UMainePPF.org/scholarships no later than December 31, 2021.
