Established in 2005, the FPA Flexible Packaging Academic Scholarship & Internship Program provides career development opportunities for packaging and printing school students, and encourages them to pursue careers in the flexible packaging industry (or other areas of concentration utilized in the converting industry).
The program combines summer internships at FPA converter member companies with FPA academic scholarships. Internships are available in a variety of disciplines and locations.

FPA, in conjunction with FPA members participating in the 2015 Program, will award four (4) scholarships, valued at $3,000 each.
Students must be accepted as an intern with a member company prior to being eligible for a scholarship. Students must satisfactorily complete their internship with the FPA member company before receiving their scholarship. If there are more qualified applicants than available scholarships, the recipients will be determined by lottery. That determination will be made prior to the beginning of the internship.
