The SGIA Scholarship Program is accepting applications from students who plan to attend a post-secondary education program in the fall of 2017. “The next generation of imagers—meaning future employees, business owners and creators—is crucial to the growth and survival of this industry,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services. “We as a community have an obligation to support them, and it’s an honor to do so.”
The program will award $2,000 each to 10 student recipients. Scholarship winners will be carefully selected by the SGIA Education Committee based on academic achievement, work experience, extracurriculars, financial need, and a one-page essay, as well as academic and professional recommendations.
Secondary seniors and post-secondary, full-time students are qualified for entry. They must be a student of an active SGIA Educational Institution member and committed to pursuing a career within the growing imaging community.
