Your future is right around the corner. You’re probably excited about the next step in your educational journey. And you should be, because it’s an exciting time. Except for the cost.
At Belmark, we want to do our small part to help you achieve the future you want, despite the rising costs of college tuition. That’s why we’ve created the Belmark tru-IMPACT® Award, a $1,000 annual college scholarship for high school seniors entering a 2-year or 4-year degree program.
Why tru-IMPACT® ?
We’re committed to creating a better future. A future where the impact we make on the world around us is a positive one. It’s a dedication to responsible business that shows up in three ways:
- Environmental responsibility and sustainability. We’re committed to preserving and protecting our planet’s natural resources. One way we do that is through ongoing innovation to bring new, more sustainable products to the packaging industry. Belmark’s tru-IMPACT® line of eco-friendly food packaging and sustainable flexible packaging is the first truly sustainable option in our industry to reduce landfill waste by using up to 20% post-consumer recycled plastic content.
- Good corporate citizenship for positive economic impact. We build our business responsibly for the good of our people and our community. That means smart reinvestment into our business and our employees so we can continue to be a force for good in the places we call home.
- Building up society. We support health and wellness, charitable causes, education and the efforts that build healthy and vibrant lives and communities.
That’s where you come in. Belmark takes education seriously. Because part of making the impact we want to have on the world is helping you make a true impact in your own life and education.
We envision a world where everyone who wants to pursue a college degree has that opportunity. That’s the heart behind the Belmark tru-IMPACT® Award.
