Awards & Scholarships 

Since 1976, ISM—Lehigh Valley's "Carl F. Zipf Scholarship Fund" has awarded scholarships worth over $100,000 to individuals in the community who pursued higher education with a focus on the field of Supply Chain Management.

As a member of the board of directors in 1974, Carl F. Zipf requested the Board to consider a scholarship program for college students of schools located in the Lehigh Valley. He established guidelines for the program but unfortunately did not live to see the program implemented. Upon his untimely passing in 1976, the chapter named the scholarship in his honor. The first five scholarships of $500 each were awarded in his memory.

The "Carl F. Zipf Memorial Scholarship" is awarded on an annual basis. The application window is from November to January.
