Company Memberships

The Washington Pulp & Paper Foundation is a dynamic organization of member companies committed to supporting the Bioresource Science and Engineering (BSE) program at the University of Washington and thus the future the paper industry and its allied industries. The Foundation also represents an investment in the future through students and technology. In no other way can we so effectively bring dedicated, talented and highly qualified young people into this industry and its allied industries.

The Foundation provides excellent returns on the contributions we receive. These returns result from:

  • Graduates of a rigorous engineering program that are highly qualified and "hit the ground running". Their performance and exceptional commitment to the industry translate to a high return on hiring decisions.

  • Students who are available for co-op and summer positions - an excellent way to accomplish meaningful work while getting a look at potential employees.

  • Well-equipped, cost-effective laboratory for carrying out technical work. Results are supplemented with advice and interpretation.

  • Faculty members who are available for brief consultation to in-depth contract work.

  • A way to make tax-deductible contributions to education while also benefiting the industry and your company.

  • A forum for industry leaders. The main event is the Foundation's Annual meeting.

About 40 companies comprise the Foundation's membership. Included are producer companies as well as a number of equipment, chemical supplier and engineering firms. These companies make annual contributions to the Foundation which are tax deductible and are clearly in support of higher education. Our membership levels carry the approximate relation to scholarships as shown below — and we are flexible in developing introductory memberships or meeting other needs.

We would be very pleased to talk with your company about the Foundation and would also invite you to visit us at the University of Washington.
