Interplastic Corporation is sponsoring six $3,500 scholarships in cooperation with the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and The International CAst Polymer Association (ICPA). They are another valuable benefit of ACMA & ICPA membership and are given in recognition of the important role these organizations plays in our industry.
Six Scholars will be selected annually. The funds are a one-time gift of $3,500 each and must be used for tuition and/or required books, supplies and equipment.
The scholarships are for graduating high school seniors planning to pursue a degree at an accredited four-year college or university. To be eligible, an ACMA or ICPA member company must employ the applicant’s parent or legal guardian or the applicant. Interplastic Corporation employees and their dependents are not eligible for the Scholars Awards.
The selection of the Scholars is based on all facts and circumstances, with special emphasis placed on the individuals personal merit and financial need. Merit is demonstrated in a variety of ways; academic achievement; leadership in school; civic and other extracurricular activities; motivation to serve and succeed in all endeavors. Financial need is based on expected family contributions and educational expenses.
The selection committee membership will be comprised of academia, Interplastic staff, ACMA members and AMCA staff. An Interplastic representative will chair the committee and select committee members. All deliverations of the committee will be confidential and final recommendations will be reviewed by Interplastic Corporation.
Students interested in becoming a Scholar may obtain applications by downloading the form in PDF format, or by requesting an application from Interplastic Corporation (firstname.lastname@example.org). All completed applications must be mailed or emailed to Interplastic Corporation no later than April 27, 2020.
Interplastic reserves the right to amend the program, terminate its contribution, or decrease or increase the amount of its annual contribution for future years.
