Two weeks left to apply for PGSF Scholarships

April 16, 2021

The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) announces that only two weeks remain to apply for its annual scholarship for the 2021–2022 academic year. PGSF scholarships provide funding to individuals interested in an education and a career in the graphic communications industry. The 2021–2022 scholarship application period ends May 1, 2021. Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-June of 2021.

PGSF encourages the graphic communications industry and employers to contact high schools, trade schools, community colleges, and four-year universities to urge students to apply for funding.

The PGSF scholarships provide an invaluable opportunity to receive funding to support not only students’ educational initiatives but also their careers,” comments Jules Van Sant, Chair, PGSF. “Our board members have a vested interest in building tomorrow’s workforce in the graphic communications industry.”

PGSF awards recurring scholarships to high school seniors or students already enrolled in a post-secondary program, as well as to individuals who are currently employed by a graphic communications company and are seeking additional education. This is the second consecutive year that PGSF is offering scholarships to part-time students.

  • enrolled in a printing or graphics program at a technical school, college, or university within the United States, and
  • pursuing a career in printing technology, printing management, graphic communications, or publishing.

Part-time students

Individuals who are currently employed by a graphic communications company and are seeking additional part-time education are encouraged to apply for a PGSF scholarship. In order to be considered, applicants must be confirmed by their employer by May 1. The employer must be in the graphic communications industry, either as a service provider or as a supplier to the industry. The applicant must also intend to continue a career in graphic communications, printing technology, printing management, or publishing.
