PSI Posts 2020 Scholarship Application
The PSI Chapter has launched its 2020 academic scholarship program, posting the scholarship requirements and new application here. The deadline for applications is March 16, 2020, with winners announced in early June.
The PSI scholarship program provides funds to select students who are dependents of employees in the recycling divisions of PSI Chapter member companies. PSI plans to give $2,000 scholarships to nine students in 2020, beating its previous record of eight scholarships a year given in 2018 and 2019.
PSI supports its scholarship program through raffles, donations, and an annual bowling tournament/networking event, which raises funds through individual registrations and corporate sponsorships. PSI thanks the following sponsors for supporting its 2019 PSI Palooza event, held Oct. 23 in Chicago:
Balcones Resources, Casella, CellMark, Closed Loop Partners, Greif, Harmon Recycling, Midland Davis Corp., Pioneer Industries International, Potential Industries Inc., Pratt Industries, Resource Management Companies (RMC), Texas Recycling, Waste Management, and WestRock.

“PSI’s scholarship program is successful in large part due to the generosity of its corporate sponsors,” says PSI Scholarship Committee Chair Nini Krever of Wilmington Paper Corp. “PSI scholarships can change lives, and our sponsors’ support makes it all possible.”
