The purpose of the Paper and Board Division Scholarship Program is to encourage talented science and engineering students to pursue careers in the paper industry and to utilize their talents in advancing the science and technology of papermaking. The Paper and Board Division focuses on the process of manufacturing paper and paperboard including the mechanical preparation of fibers prior to the paper machine, the preparation and evaluation of the effect of nonfibrous materials for paper and paperboard manufacture, surface application on the paper machine, and paper machine operation including auxiliary equipment from the high density chest to the winder. The selection of the recipients of the Paper and Board Division Scholarships will be made by the division scholarship committee, with the advice and consent of the division chairman and the division steering committee. Preference in the selection of scholarship recipients will be given to those applicants able to demonstrate a seriousness of purpose in pursuing a course of study related to the science and technology of the paper industry and an intent to make a career in the industry. In making its selections, the scholarship committee will not only consider the documentation submitted but may also, if it so chooses, conduct interviews with individual applicants, by telephone if personal interviews are not practical.
