Submissions are now open for the APPMA scholarship program which provides the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology to the value of over $9000.

The Diploma in Packaging Technology is an internationally recognised qualification that will prepare students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain. The qualification is comprehensive, and provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.

Mark Dingley, Chairman of the APPMA, said 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.

“The APPMA has been offering this educational program now for seven years and it is encouraging to see some of the previous winners now graduating from the Diploma,” Dingley said.

Ralph Moyle, MAIP, National President of the AIP, said “the Diploma in Packaging Technology is an internationally recognised course that will provide exemplary skills to graduates and we commend the APPMA for their long-term commitment to educational growth within the packaging industry. We encourage all packaging engineers in Australia to apply.”

Submissions close 30 January with the 2015 winner being announced at the APPMA Industry Excellence Awards, held in conjunction with AUSPACK 2015 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
