About The Paper Technology Foundation, Inc.

The Foundation was established in 1958 by the pulp and paper industry to recruit capable young men and women who wish to pursue careers in the industry; to form a partnership with Western Michigan University that provides the necessary resources to educate and train those young people, and to establish a scholarship program that will assist students financially during their college years. The Foundation accomplishes its mission through the annual gifts of its members, through the earnings on its endowment, and through capital campaigns.

PTF provides resources and leadership to advance the global pulp and paper industry with innovation, technology and motivated graduates.
