Printing United Alliance’s Student Scholarship Award Program is now accepting applications for the 2021-22 academic year.
The program, which is supported by generous donations from endowment investors and industry leaders, will award $2000 to 25 students studying graphic communications, granting a total of $50,000 in educational assistance. The deadline to receive submissions is April 30.
Scholarship applications will be judged on a combination of scholastic achievements, application essay, participation in extracurricular activities, accomplishments and awards, work experience, and academic and professional recommendations.
To apply for the scholarship, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Currently attending a Printing United Alliance educational institution member school;
- Enrolled to attend a college/university for the Fall 2021 semester as a full-time student (registered for 12 or more credits);

- Maintain a cumulative 3.0 grade point average or higher on a 4.0 scale.
“Printing United Alliance is committed to supporting those students wishing to join the printing and graphic arts industry and is proud to extend the necessary resources to ensure they have the proper funds to do so,” said the association’s CEO, Ford Bowers. “Each year we are inspired by the enthusiasm and interest of some of the foremost talent that will undoubtedly contribute to innovation in the future.”
