The Paper Stock Industries (PSI) Chapter of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Washington, has officially kicked off its 2019 academic scholarship program, with plans to give $2,000 scholarships to eight students next year, matching its 2018 record.
According to a press release, the PSI scholarship program provides funds to select students who are dependents of employees in the recycling divisions of PSI Chapter member companies.
Interested students can review the 2019 scholarship requirements and access the new application here. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2019, with winners announced June 1.
“For more than 20 years, PSI Chapter scholarships have helped qualified students pursue higher education and achieve their academic dreams,” says PSI scholarship committee chair Nini Krever of Wilmington Paper Corp. “These scholarships can change lives, and PSI is thrilled to be able to offer eight scholarships again next year.”
PSI supports its scholarship program through raffles, donations and an annual fundraising bowling tournament held in conjunction with Recycling Today's Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference North America.
