Financial Grant Program

The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation’s new Educational Use Grant Program received a huge influx of requests and, as a result, our budget for 2022 has been allocated.

As the main objective of PGSF is to support educators and students in graphic communications, we were thrilled with the response! It is wonderful to see the curriculum being used to teach students the career opportunities in graphic communications and the interest instructors have shown in their student’s success.

Funds in 2022 have been used for equipment purchases and student travel expenses to attend print-related competitions along with off-campus course offerings.

PGSF plans to reopen the Educational Use Grant Program in January 2023. Information will again be distributed via media organizations, the PGSF website, social media, and email notifications with a call to apply directly to our database of institutions and instructors. To ensure you receive our notifications, email contact@pgsf.org with your contact information so you can be added to our database.

Who Can Apply

Educational institutions with a graphics / visual communications program are eligible to apply. These include high schools, trade schools, junior and community college associate programs, four-year colleges, and universities, along with Masters and Doctorate Degree programs. There are limited funds available annually to be used for a variety of purposes. These can include specific requests that will support furthering students’ education and exposure to the print, packaging, and related industries.

Requests can include:

  • Registration and travel expenses for students to attend industry expos and events
  • Fees associated with thought leaders and experts to attend and present at a relevant event hosted by the institution,
  • Purchase of equipment to complement a program and expand the school’s current curriculum 

Restrictions and other considerations apply. A committee will review all applications and awards on merit and as funds allow as outlined in the PGSF bylaws.
