DuPont Tedlar Scholarship Awarded to Students through SPE Foundation

DuPont Tedlar and the SPE (Society of Plastic Engineers) Foundation announced that two students have been awarded the DuPont Tedlar Scholarship for academic study focused on plastics engineering. Each scholarship recipient received $2,500 to support their studies in STEM. The scholarships are part of a year-long partnership between DuPont Tedlar and SPE to support the Foundation’s three-pronged approach to enrich and develop the future workforce for plastics industry.

“It’s extremely rewarding to support these two very deserving students in their academic pursuits of making an impact in the plastics industry,” said Corynn Sheridan, Global Marketing Director, DuPont Tedlar. “I’m inspired by the passion and dedication of the recipients and hope that our DuPont Tedlar scholarship will continue to play a positive role in supporting the next generation of STEM workers for years to come.”

The two scholarship recipients are Cameron Sawicki, a junior at Ferris State University majoring in Plastics and Polymer Engineering Technology and Michael Quinn, Jr., a senior at Penn State Behrend majoring in plastics engineering technology.

“I’m passionate about plastics engineering and am committed to making a positive contribution to the industry,” said Cameron Sawicki. “With this scholarship I can focus more on my studies and research, allowing me to explore innovative solutions and sustainable practices in the field of plastics.”

“Receiving this scholarship is a significant milestone in my academic journey,” said Michael Quinn, Jr. “I’m determined to give back to the community and make a positive impact, just as DuPont Tedlar has done through this scholarship program.”

DuPont Tedlar and the SPE Foundation partnered in 2023 to enable these scholarships, as well as developing a PlastiVancurriculum to travel to schools for STEM educational days. Furthermore, Tedlarsponsored the Girl Scouts of America event in Orlando, Florida, providing demonstration material and support. This collaboration has been extended through 2024, with Tedlar helping to expand the PlastiVanprogram as well as continued work with the Girl Scouts of America. Tedlar and the SPE Foundation are focusing on classrooms and STEM education in Buffalo, NY, and Circleville, OH, two locations where Tedlar is manufactured.
