Abstract/ Summary

The UMaine Pulp and Paper Foundation is pleased to announce that in 2019 our Executive Committee finalized the new Strategic Plan to expand our scholarship recipient student body to 150 students! We have already grown from 80 students in 2017 to over 100 students in 2019, and we still don’t have enough available students to fill the industry’s entry-level engineering needs. Our mission to bring together students, the University, the Pulp and Paper Industry and our Donors becomes even more critical as the demand for engineers grows across the board. We are engaging with a marketing firm to help us showcase the opportunities we offer to work with a renewable resource in an industry that is evolving and growing. In this way we will demonstrate to UMaine, prospective students, and potential donors that the UMPPF program is a unique, increasingly relevant way to earn a degree in just four years while garnering two semesters of paid work experience, incurring little to no college debt, and enjoying 100% job placement.
