Print and Graphics Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 200

The Scholarship Selection Committee of PGSF is comprised of college educators and industry leaders experienced in interpreting test scores, school records, and other pertinent information. The confidential file of every candidate who becomes a semifinalist in the competition is carefully reviewed. Scholarship candidates are judged on the basis of their academic records; recommendations offered from instructors, advisors, and employers; biographical records, which indicate academic honors; extracurricular interests, etc.

Announcement of Winners

In July, a letter will notify scholarship winners. Each scholarship award becomes official when the winner returns a form that confirms enrollment in an approved college and the student's signature verifying acceptance of the scholarship.

Value of Awards

Scholarship awards vary in amount from $1,000 to $5,000 per academic year, in most cases, for up to four years. In addition, all current recipients are given an honorary membership in the Printing Industries of America for the duration of their studies. Thus, they receive the same benefits that other Educational Members receive, such as discounts on Printing Industries of America products. PGSF students may post their résumés on printworkers.com for those who are seeking internships, part-time, or full-time employment. The Scholarship Selection Committee of PGSF will determine the amount of each scholarship. The amount of the scholarship is not made public. The award will be paid in a lump sum directly to the college financial aid office, in the student's name. The college will be authorized to draw upon the grant for payment of tuition and other fees.

Scholarship Renewal

A scholarship is awarded for up to four years of college (unless otherwise specified) provided the scholarship recipient maintains a high scholastic average and continues in an approved program of study. The student's record is reviewed at the end of each grading period and, if satisfactory, the award is extended for the following year. Students are required to maintain a cumulative "B" (3.0) average. If a student's grades fall below this cumulative average, the student will be put on academic probation and the funds withheld until the grades are raised. If the student does not raise the grades during the same academic year, the student loses the scholarship and must reapply.
