Donations & Scholarships

 

Promoting the future. Awarding of  scholarships is vital to our mission. CII’s role has always been education — from the early days of containerization when the industry itself had to learn new technology, to today, as we help to educate future industry leaders.

Companies interested in sponsoring scholarships can do so for as little as $1,000. CII will work to secure the right candidate and all funds will go to the student.

To help CII support development of our industry’s future talent, please email info@containerization.org.
