The Printing United Alliance (Fairfax, Virginia), producer of the annual Printing United Expo, has announced the recipients of this year’s Annual Student Scholarship Award Program. Made possible through donations from endowment investors and industry leaders through the Printing United Alliance Foundation, the Student Scholarship Program provides $50,000 total, in financial support to students planning a future in the printing and graphic arts industry. This year’s scholarship recipients are enrolled to attend a Printing United Alliance Educational Institution Member college or university full time for the Fall 2022 Semester, and are pursuing a career in graphic communications, printing technology, or printing management. They must also have maintained a cumulative 3.0 grade point average or higher on a 4.0 scale. The four Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University in downtown Toronto) student winners are enrolled in its four-year Graphic Communications Management (GCM) Program. Special congratulations to Scholarship recipients Andy Huang, Jasmine Dawdy, Lorena Florea and Manya Ganju.
“Printing United Alliance congratulates our student members who have gone above and beyond in academic excellence, and are studying to one day join our industry,” said Ford Bowers, CEO, Printing United Alliance. “Given the complexities of our current economy, coupled with what has been a challenging academic environment, we applaud these students for their dedication and hard work. We are proud to support them and look forward to having these member students as part of our future industry workforce.” For more information, including the other scholarship recipients from the U.S., please visit the Printing United Alliance Student Scholarship online page.
