MICA Corporation and Siegel Family Endow New Scholarship Fund

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The MICA Corporation and the Siegel Family have endowed the Daniel Siegel Scholarship Fund. The fund will assist deserving youth in pursuit of a career in the field of packaging. This gift will be a testament to Daniel Siegel's interest in TAPPI and higher education for all.

The Daniel Siegel Scholarship Fund comes at a crucial time in American Manufacturing. "A chronic shortage of engineering students threatens America's role as the world's leading innovator and continues to impede our nation's fragile economic recovery," wrote Paul Otellini, a member of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, in a recent opinion piece for The Washington Post. This shortage of engineers is even more acute in the manufacturing sector and threatens America's ability to retain its innovation edge.

This fund will help to encourage promising students to continue their studies and become the next great innovators for the packaging industry. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff here at TAPPI and all the young people who will benefit from your generosity; we thank you for this important gift.
