Signs Now Partners with EDSF to Sponsor 2014 Scholarship Program

Signs Now, a member of the Sign & Graphics Division of Alliance Franchise Brands, has announced that, once again, they will partner with Electronic Document Scholarship Foundation (EDSF), an international, non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and communications industries, to administer five new scholarships. The scholarships, totaling $10,000 for the 2014 academic year, will support students who are preparing for careers in the printing and document communications.

 

Signs Now Vice President of Marketing and Communications Bernard Haun said, “Once again we are proud to recognize some of the leaders in our franchise network for their efforts in the industry and their hard work on behalf of their communities. These scholarships in their honor are a reflection of their dedication to excellence and progress.”

 

EDSF Executive Director Brenda Kai said, “We are delighted that Signs Now has selected EDSF for a third straight year to administer scholarships on their behalf.  We applaud Signs Now for their support and encouragement of young people pursuing careers in graphic arts, document technology, marketing and communications.

 

“These scholarships are part of the EDSF Legacy Scholarship program, which is designed to enable small businesses to become involved with scholarships that benefit students and colleges from selected areas.”

 

EDSF began accepting applications in mid-January 2014. Scholarships are awarded based on scholastic achievement, honors received and participation in school activities, along with community service and organizational affiliations. Eligibility requirements include a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 Scale and full-time student status. The Signs Now home office in Columbia, Maryland is sponsoring the scholarships on behalf of the following franchise members.
