Funds to help further education of the future specialty imaging workforce

Fairfax, Virginia - In conjunction with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Foundation (SGIF), a nonprofit educational affiliate of SGIA, the Association is proud to announce a new scholarship program for students who plan to attend a post-secondary education program in the fall of 2016.

Supported by generous donations from endowment investors and industry leaders, the SGIA Scholarship Program will award $2,000 to five student recipients. Applicants will complete a rigorous application process, and scholarship winners will be carefully selected by the SGIA Education Committee.

Student applicants are reviewed based on their scholastic achievement, application essay, participation in extracurricular activities, achievements and work experience, and academic and professional recommendations. They must be a student of an active SGIA Educator Member and committed to pursuing a career within the growing imaging community.

The application deadline is April 15, 2016. For more information about the SGIA Scholarship Program and how to enter, contact Erin Nuss, SGIA's Associate Manager of Education.
