Press release from the issuing company

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - On behalf of the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) Board of Directors and donors, PGSF would like to extend congratulations and very best wishes to the graduating class of 2014.

“As you embark upon your future, please know that we at PGSF have been extremely proud to assist you during your undergraduate career,” said Bernie Eckert, PGSF administrator. “We look forward to you becoming a successful leader of the printing industry by giving back your enthusiasm, talent, and the experience you have gained.”

Individuals, companies, and associations provide both annual and endowed scholarship funds to PGSF, which administers the scholarship and fellowship programs for the industry. The PGSF Board of Directors approved $380,000 to be awarded for scholarships in the 2013–2014 academic years.

“Thank you for all your support over the past four years! Without these scholarships, my schooling would not have been possible! I appreciate all you have done to sponsor my degree at Ferris State University. I’ve been able to find employment a few days after graduation.”  —Ariel Star, Ferris State University

“In my time in college, I have seen many different sides of the world of print and graphics, from both a business and design perspective. I have grown so much. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of all of you and the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation. Thank you again for your generosity.” —Dana Richman, Arizona State University
