Pittsburgh, Pa., May 6, 2003— The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) announces a new annual scholarship campaign designed for companies to develop their own individual scholarships. The 2 x 4 scholarship program may be designated for children of employees, students in the community, and colleges in their area.
The 2 x 4 “Building for the Future” campaign is planned for two (or more) scholarships for a contract period of four years. For $3,300 a year two students can receive significant scholarship assistance. The four-year period will insure that the students can complete their studies.
“In these day of zero-based budgeting, it is important to offer a flexible scholarship program that can benefit the local graphic arts community,” says Ted Ringman, vice president of development for PGSF. “We currently provide over 200 scholarships. However over 80% of the scholarship applicants are turned down due to lack of funds. The 2 x 4 scholarship allows donors to design a program that best fits their requirements. For an investment of $3,300 the donor can specify the restrictions and PGSF will do the rest.”
