PSI Scholarships Assist Students with College Expenses

PSI-Scholarships_iSt907837926

One membership benefit of the Paper Stock Industries Chapter and ISRI’s Recycling Research and Education Foundation is to annually award academic scholarships that help select college-bound students pay for their higher education.

2021 Scholarship Winners

The PSI Chapter has selected nine college-bound students as winners in its annual academic scholarship program. The chapter awarded a record $25,000 in scholarships this year, including one $5,000 grand-prize scholarship—its largest single scholarship ever—and eight $2,500 merit scholarships. Winning students are allowed to apply the scholarships toward tuition at any regionally accredited two-year or four-year post-secondary school for the 2021-2022 academic year.
