Press release from the issuing company

HURST, Texas - The Electronic Document Scholarship Foundation (EDSF), an international non-profit organization dedicated to developing and providing programs to attract support for the education plans of selected students worldwide is pleased to announce its’ scholarship awards for 2014-15. EDSF’s scholarship program makes it possible for students to receive the education necessary to pursue careers in the Document Management and Graphic Communications industry. What makes EDSF unique is the international scope of their operations. Since the inception of its scholarship program in 1999, EDSF has awarded 568 scholarships to exceptional students in the Unites States and other countries including Australia, Belarus, Canada, China, Dubai, Iceland, Italy, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

This year EDSF is proud to announce that 65 scholarships to 49 students across the globe were awarded. A complete list of students and our sponsors can be found here. “At this time of year when everyone seems to be focused on the process and excitement of going ‘back to school,’ we are focused on providing the critical financial support necessary to help keep the dreams of students in our industry alive and well. With the generous donations from our Board of Directors combined with industry and individual donations, we are very proud to be able to help many of these bright young people take another big step toward their goals”, said Brenda Kai, EDSF Executive Director.  

Kai added that, “Industry support continues to be the lifeblood of our scholarship program. No one knows what dream might have died or what future industry star may have taken a different path if they had not received financial aid from your generosity. What we do know is that we have tremendous success stories from those that did receive aid and how important your contributions are is reflected in the comments of a few of our students:”

Following are remarks from several of our 2014-15 scholarship recipients:
