The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is now accepting applications for the 2021–2022 academic year. PGSF provides scholarships to individuals interested in an education and a career in the graphics communications industry. The 2021–2022 application period runs from Nov. 1, 2020, to May 1, 2021.
PGSF’s goal is to attract individuals to the graphics communications industry and inform them of the wide variety of career opportunities available. The organization awards scholarships to high school seniors, students already enrolled in a post-secondary program, and individuals currently employed by a graphic communications company seeking additional education.
This is the second consecutive year PGSF is offering scholarships to part-time students.
“We strive to help students pursuing an education in the graphics communications industry, and we’re excited to offer scholarships to those already in the workforce for the second year in a row. It’s a valuable resource to employers and employees looking to expand and grow within their organization,” says Jules Van Sant, chair of PGSF.
