Five students selected to receive scholarship for the 2016–2017 academic year
Fairfax, Virginia - In conjunction with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Foundation (SGIF), a nonprofit educational affiliate of SGIA, the Association is proud to announce five SGIA Scholarship Program winners!
"SGIA is thrilled to be able to support these students," said Erin Nuss, SGIA's Associate Manager of Education. "They worked hard for it, and we know that they will bring that work ethic not only to their education, but to the industry."
