TLMI Scholarship Programs

Investing in the education and success of our workforce is an important priority to our organization. TLMI provides scholarships in three categories: two-year college degree program ($1,000), four-year college degree program ($5,000), and full-time employees of member companies ($5,000). TLMI will also provide one graduate-degree-program scholarship per year to a full-time employee of a member company who is pursuing their graduate degree.

Scholarship selection is based on academic achievement, a demonstrated interest in the tag, label and package printing industry, a statement of goals, a personal interview and letter from the applicant's employer verifying the applicant's employment status (if applicable).

If a student is selected to receive a TLMI Scholarship they must then submit his or her course schedule by semester to TLMI. TLMI will then submit payment directly to the institution for the amount rewarded.
