M. Holland Company and the Plastics Pioneers Association have joined forces to create the Plastics Pioneers Association/M. Holland Company Scholarship. The $3,000 scholarship is awarded on an annual basis to one undergraduate student majoring in a plastics-related field.

Northbrook, IL – Further demonstrating our steadfast commitment to plastics education, M. Holland has teamed up with PPA to establish the Plastics Pioneers Association/M. Holland Company Scholarship. The $3,000 annual award will be granted to one undergraduate college student majoring in plastics engineering, plastics engineering technology, or polymer science.

The Plastics Pioneers Scholarship Review Committee will be tasked with reviewing all applications and materials before selecting the recipient. Along with standard scholarship criteria such as grade point average, year in school, and financial need, the committee will also consider current/past scholastic activities, plastics-related courses taken, plastics research conducted, and related internships/jobs. Students wishing to apply will also be required to obtain three letters of recommendation and submit a statement indicating why they are applying for the scholarship. The Plastics Pioneers Scholarship Review Committee will then award points for each criteria, allowing for well-rounded individuals to rise to the top of the list.

“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the Plastics Pioneers Association to bring this scholarship to life,” said Ed Holland, President and CEO of M. Holland. Plastics Pioneers Association has long been dedicated to providing students opportunities to thrive in the plastics industry.
