PGSF Scholarship Foundation

PGSF Scholarship Foundation

The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is a not-for-profit, private industry directed organization that dispenses technical school, undergraduate and graduate fellowship assistance to men and women interested in a career in the graphic communications field.

PGSF has two main missions. First, to attract young people to the industry and inform them (and their parents, school advisors, etc.) of the wide variety of career opportunities available. Second, if they are pursuing post-secondary education in order to enter the field, we provide financial assistance to them.

The Foundation, along with its donors and sponsors, are working to build the future workforce of the graphic communications industry.
