PAC donates $25,000 towards printing scholarships at Ryerson
TORONTO—The Packaging Association of Canada (PAC) has donated $25,000 in scholarships to the School of Graphic Communications Management at Ryerson University.

The 2013-2014 academic year will mark the beginning of the initiative between PAC and the school, with $25,000 to be distributed over five years in the form of 20 scholarships. "The awards will go to students who successfully complete the first year of the program, with special emphasis on the packaging curriculum," noted the association. "These students will also be members of PAC."

The association says it has also been instrumental in helping launch the school’s new extracurricular team that focuses on packaging education, called RyePack.

“With recent technology additions, the school is now capable of both offset and flexographic output. PAC has been a partner in the process of integrating packaging curriculum into the program from the very beginning. Packaging has such a promising future, and we are excited to be a part of that at Ryerson,” says Ian Baitz, chair of the program.

Also recently, the Canadian Flexographic Training Committee announced a $17,500 donation towards printing scholarships at Ryerson.
