Foundation Membership

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. The Foundation 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.

Membership News

It gives us great pleasure to announce that ABB has rejoined the Foundation. ABB first joined the Foundation in 1991 and after a hiatus of a few years has elected to again participate. We would not be able to count ABB among our members without the help and support of Craig Rogers, account manager and 1992 UW PSE alumnus. Please welcome ABB and Craig.
