Less than a week to go to apply for a PGSF scholarship

The scholarships gives individuals in the US interested in an education and career in the graphics communications industry funding.

Ahead of the deadline, the PGSF is asking the graphics communications industry and employers to get in touch with high schools, trade schools, community colleges and four-year universities to encourage students to apply.

Both full-time students and people who are currently employed by a graphic communications company and are seeking part-time education are encouraged to apply.

Jules Van Sant, chair of the PGSF comments: “The PGSF scholarships provide an invaluable opportunity to receive funding to support not only students’ educational initiatives, but also their careers.

“Our board members have a vested interest in building tomorrow’s workforce in the graphic communications industry.”

The PGSF has been awarding scholarships for over 60 years with the first nine students being awarded scholarships in 1958.

In 2019 the Foundation became independent from Printing Industries of America and the endowment fund passed the $10m (£7.2m) mark. Today, over $500,000 (£360,092) scholarships have been awarded to 220 recipients at 92 schools.

Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-June with funding averaging $1,000 to $5,000.
