The EDSF scholarship program was initiated in 1999 to recognize and support the next generation of professionals for the Document Management and Graphic Communication industry.
What has traditionally been referred to as the printing business encompasses many segments: general commercial printing, quick printing, digital imaging, magazine, newspaper and book printing, financial and legal printing, screen printing, business forms printing, label and tag printing, packaging, greeting cards, and trade and finishing services.
Due to the rapid technological changes and broadening of the scope of services provided by many of the companies in the field today, it is more commonly referred to as the Document Management and Graphic Communication industry. Companies in the business have expanded services to include creative design, e-commerce, web page design and hosting, mailing, fulfillment, and a host of services that provide horizontal marketing well beyond the core printing model. This is a description that more accurately represents the broader range of what “printers” do today.
To be eligible for an EDSF scholarship, students must have the following:
- An interest in pursuing a career within the Document Management and Graphic Communication industry
- Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale
- Full-time student attending an accredited college or university anywhere in the world as of the Fall 2016 semester
- International students may apply
Scholarships are based on a combination of the following: scholastic achievement, application essay, participation in school activities, community service, honors and organizational affiliations, education objectives and academic and professional recommendations. Depending on specific sponsor criteria, other elements may be considered, such as geographic location, college preference, organization and presentation
Application can be done by post and through email. You have to send through both ways.
