With the holiday season fast approaching and submissions closing January 20, 2017 for APPMA’s ninth annual Scholarship program, it’s time to complete your proposal for consideration. The Scholarship program enables one lucky packaging technologist, designer or engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology to the value of $9,000.
Diploma in Packaging Technology students are from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, and are typically experienced practitioners or managers in technical, sales/marketing, QA, purchasing, engineering or design.
This year’s winner was Michael Seaman, packaging and process improvement specialist, Integria Healthcare. The judges considered him an outstanding candidate who is extremely passionate about packaging, which they believe will greatly assist his studies. They praised his broad understanding of the applications and implications of packaging.
“The impact of packaging on, and within, business continues to have me hooked,” Seaman acknowledged. “Moreover, the opportunities to impact both product and the environment, through the choices made on packaging related matters, reinforces that the packaging arena is for me. Put simply, I love working in the field of packaging, and my desire to continue the journey of learning, and applying those learnings, continues to grow.”
"Completion of the Diploma in Packaging Technology demonstrates your commitment to your career and to the industry," notes Mark Dingley, APPMA chairman. "Delegates who successfully complete the Diploma are equipping themselves for senior positions within the packaging industry."
