The Scholarship Fund of the National Office Products Alliance (NOPA) is pleased to announce that 45 college students are the proud recipients of a one-year scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Helping others succeed has always been a cornerstone of IOPFDA and nowhere is it more evident than in these awards," said Ireland.
