Endowments and Scholarship Funds

Graduates of the Plastics Engineering Department have been extremely generous over the years in providing donations for our various Scholarship and Endowment funds. Your gifts help us provide our current and future students with the opportunity to succeed in life just as alumni before you did while you were a student. Gifts in any amount are sincerely appreciated by both the faculty and the scholarship recipients.
