Submissions are now open for the seventh annual scholarship program offered by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) in association with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP).

Valued at over $9000, the scholarship program will provide a packaging engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology, an internationally recognised qualification that will prepare students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain. The program provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.

APPMA Chairman Mark Dingley explains that the Annual Scholarship Program is a unique opportunity for a packaging engineer to attain a Diploma in Packaging Technology and further their education in the packaging industry. Several winners in the past have successfully graduated from the Diploma program.

According to AIP National President Mr Ralph Moyle, MAIP, the AIP is at the forefront of packaging training and education in Australasia, helping to shape the careers of generations of packaging professionals from packaging technologists to international packaging business leaders along with a host of people in associated disciplines such as sales and marketing, purchasing, production and environment.

Mr Moyle, on behalf of AIP, also commended the APPMA for their long-term commitment to educational growth within the packaging industry.

Application forms are now available for the 2015 APPMA Scholarship and can be accessed by emailing APPMA or AIP, or visiting the respective websites.

Submissions must be received by Close of Business on Friday the 30th of January with the 2015 winner to be announced at the APPMA Industry Excellence Awards being held in conjunction with AUSPACK 2015 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
