The NC State Pulp and Paper Foundation was incorporated in 1954. The Southern paper industry desired a regional paper science curriculum to provide a source of graduates with the technical and engineering skills necessary to immediately have an impact on its paper mills.
To encourage the best and brightest to enroll in NC State’s paper science program, industry provided both scholarships and summer jobs to these students. A few years later, the endowed scholarship program was established. Today there are over 135 endowed scholarships for this program providing financial support to more than 100 students enrolled in the Paper Science and Engineering program at NC State University.
Today, the Paper Science and Engineering program (PSE) is one of the best in the country. With over 50 years of history and over 1900 alumni, the PSE program continues to enjoy strong enrollment and its graduates continue to enjoy outstanding success in their careers.
