Scholarships are available to full-time promotional products industry employees or their dependent children. Scholarships are available for undergraduate education only except for the Friends of PPMN Scholarship which may be used for undergraduate or graduate level coursework (industry employees only). Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to apply. Applicants may apply for more than one scholarship if all requirements are met.
Special note: The Four-Year College Scholarships will be awarded first. Applicants not receiving a Four-Year College Scholarship will be automatically considered for the One-Year College Scholarships and Named Scholarships so a separate application is not required. To be considered for the need-based scholarships, PPEF must receive a copy of the Student Aid Report that a student receives after filing the FAFSA. Application deadline is March 15 at Midnight Central Time.
