Sappi Fine Paper Donates $100,000 for Scholarships

Sappi Fine Paper North America will donate $100,000 over the course of four years to the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship fund for engineers. The Sappi Scholarship Fund is a leadership gift to the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation’s $2 million fundraising campaign, which begins this year. Sappi Fine Paper North America has supported the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation since its inception in 1950. The company is a member in the foundation, supports the foundation’s Consider Engineering Program, provides internship and co-op positions for undergraduate engineering students, and ultimately hires qualified University of Maine graduates. Many former recipients of University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation scholarships are found at all levels of leadership throughout Sappi’s two Maine-based mills in Skowhegan and Westbrook, and across the company in North America.
