Press release from the issuing company

Students of active SGIA Educational Institution members are encouraged to apply

Fairfax, Virginia - The  SGIA Scholarship Program is accepting applications from students who plan to attend a post-secondary education program in the fall of 2017.

“The next generation of imagers — meaning future employees, business owners and creators — is crucial to the growth and survival of this industry,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services. “We as a community have an obligation to support them, and it’s an honor to do so.”

The program will award $2,000 each to 10 student recipients. Scholarship winners will be carefully selected by the SGIA Education Committee based on academic achievement, work experience, extracurriculars, financial need and a one-page essay, as well as academic and professional recommendations.

Secondary seniors and post-secondary, full-time students are qualified for entry. They must be a student of an active SGIA Educational Institution member and committed to pursuing a career within the growing imaging community. 

Students must submit their applications by April 14, 2017 to be considered. For more information, contact Erin Nuss, SGIA’s Associate Manager of Education.
