The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), in conjunction with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Foundation (SGIF), is accepting scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 academic year. With the continued support of donations from endowment investors and industry leaders, 20 students will be eligible for $2,000 each.

Mitchell Morgan, who received the scholarship in 2016 and 2017, when he was a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), said, “Winning the SGIA scholarship had a tremendous impact on my education and, indirectly, my career.”

“I am truly grateful for the impact that this organization has been able to make on my life and my ability to afford my education at RIT,” he added.
