  • Scholarship Description
  • The Scholarship Foundation's purpose is to provide scholarships to qualified and interested students who want to prepare for careers in this growing, dynamic industry. The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation was organized in 1956 by concerned industry leaders as a nonprofit, private, industry-directed corporation to develop and dispense scholarship and fellow assistance to talented young men and women who are interested in graphic communications careers. PGSF is able to help approximately 300 students annually.

    To be eligible to compete for a scholarship award, the student must be:
    - Interested in a career in graphic communications
    - A high school senior or a high school graduate that has not yet started college
    - A college student who is enrolled in a two- or four-year college program
    - A full-time student (scholarships are not awarded for part-time study)

    Anyone meeting the qualifications may apply for a scholarship. The candidates are judged on the basis of their high school/college academic records, rank in class, recommendations offered from counselors, advisors, teachers, and biographical information, which includes extracurricular interests and academic honors. Scholarship selection is made by a selection committee comprised of educators and industry leaders. The winners are announced by letter in June or July and payment is made directly to the school.

    Unless otherwise specified, scholarships are renewable annually. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, continue at the school in which they originally enrolled, and continue to major in graphic communications. If a student's grades fall below 3.0, funds will be withheld.

    All scholarship recipients receive a complimentary membership to Graphic Arts Technical Foundation to keep them abreast of the latest technical information.
