PRINTING United Alliance, the most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in the U.S., today announces the recipients of its 2021 Student Scholarship Program. The annual scholarship program, supported by generous donations from endowment investors and industry leaders through the PRINTING United Alliance Foundation, provides financial support to students planning a future in the printing and graphic arts industry.
The PRINTING United Alliance Scholarship Program grants a total of $50,000 in educational assistance to graphic communications students around the world for the 2021-22 academic year. Students receiving the scholarship are enrolled to attend a PRINTING United Alliance Educational Member college or university full time (12 or more credits) for the Fall 2021 semester, and are committed to pursuing a career in graphic communications, printing technology, or printing management. Recipients must also have maintained a cumulative 3.0 grade point average or higher on a 4.0 scale.
“We are enthusiastic in the interest we receive for the PRINTING United Alliance Scholarship Program from students around the world year over year,” says Ford Bowers, CEO, PRINTING United Alliance. “In a time when industry fortitude is most important, the continued desire for students in printing and graphic arts to study the latest technology and innovations is a healthy sign for the future generation of this industry.
