The Print & Graphics Scholarship Foundation is Now Accepting Scholarship Applications

Financial scholarships are granted to students interested in secondary education in the graphics communications industry.

The application system through the Print & Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) for the 2024-2025 academic year is now open to full- or part-time students pursuing secondary education and a career in the graphics communications industry. 

The 2024 to 2025 scholarship application period runs from November 1, 2023, to May 1, 2024. Scholarship applications are evaluated during May and June, and recipients will be notified in July and August of next year. The online application can be found under the student’s tab at

More than $550,000 scholarships were granted for the 2023 to 2024 year to more than 180 students attending technical schools, colleges, and universities in the US. (You can read more about this year’s Scholarship Foundation here.)

According to PGSF, the organization’s goal is to attract individuals to the graphic communications industry and to inform them of the wide variety of career opportunities available. The organization awards scholarships to high school seniors or students already enrolled in a post-secondary program, as well as to individuals who are currently employed by a graphic communications company and are seeking additional education.

“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 fifth year in a row,” says Jules Van Sant, Chair, PGSF, in a release. “It’s a valuable resource to employers and employees looking to expand and grow within their organization.”

Part-Time Applications

Individuals who are currently employed by a graphic communications company and are seeking additional, part-time secondary education are encouraged to apply for a PGSF scholarship. To be considered, applicants must be confirmed by their employer by May 1, 2024. The employer must be in the graphic communications industry, either as a service provider or as a supplier to the industry. The applicant must also intend to continue a career in graphic communications, printing technology, printing management, packaging, or publishing.  Scholarships are available to students attending schools in the United States.

No transcripts or GPA are required for the initial application unless the student is currently enrolled in a program; however, to be considered for scholarship renewal, the recipient must achieve and maintain a cumulative 3.0 or higher GPA. Grades are to be submitted upon completion of coursework and sent to PGSF when requested.

Scholarships for part-time applicants may be awarded for online-only programs. The application must indicate the program of study the applicant plans on taking, the number of credits per term and the expected cost. This information will be used to establish the amount of any award.
