The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is pleased to mark the milestone of $10 million in scholarships distributed to students seeking higher education in graphic communications since 2000. PGSF and its donors award hundreds of scholarships each year to support future members of the graphics communications industry. In the current academic year alone, the organization awarded more than 200 scholarships, collectively valued at over $500,000, ranging from $1,000 to $7,100 per recipient.
“The $10 million milestone is one that everyone should be proud of. Each scholarship is an investment in the students, the schools, and the businesses that support PGSF and the graduating students. PGSF is pivotal for strengthening the education cycle and the future of the graphic communications industry,” comments Jules Van Sant, Chair, PGSF.
PGSF is a nonprofit dedicated to dispensing undergraduate college and technical school scholarships and graduate fellowship assistance, funded by annual and endowed funds provided by individuals, companies, and associations.
Educators Praise PGSF
“I truly admire the hard work of the PGSF making so many opportunities available to our students in this difficult time. Their support is an ongoing beacon of encouragement for me as a teacher and an aspirational point for our students, who through the support of the PGSF have been able to achieve a high-quality education in printing and graphic arts,” comments Dr. Grant Tedaldi of Orange Technical College in Orlando.
“PGSF scholarships are a good investment by the industry in the future of young professionals who will continue to develop and improve the field of graphic communication,” Dr. Mark Snyder, Professor, Millersville University of Pennsylvania.Advertisement
