Paper Science & Chemical Engineering Foundation
Welcome to the Paper Science & Chemical Engineering Foundation at UWSP! 
Who We Are
The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point Paper Science and Chemical Engineering Foundation (PS&ChE Foundation) was organized in 1974 by the Paper Science Department Staff, along with industrial and business leaders. The purpose of the Foundation was to form a tax-exempt, non-profit organization to promote and receive philanthropic gifts to support the Paper Science Program at UWSP. The management of the Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors composed of up to twenty-two (22) voting members, each elected for a three-year term. The Board, along with the Foundation staff, also works to enhance the image and presence of the Paper Science and Chemical Engineering Program to incoming applicants, alumni, friends, corporations and the general public. Private gifts and donations raised by the Foundation traditionally support scholarships, academic programs, facility research, pilot equipment, and other areas that are not, or cannot be supported from state appropriations.
