Graphic Packaging International Scholarship Program

Scholarships are awarded annually by the Company through the Graphic Packaging International Philanthropic Fund.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.
