The Foundation’s main purpose is to support industry education, as well as offering scholarships to students who are pursuing a career in printing technology/management. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided over $180,000 in scholarships to students in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. Scholarship amounts range from $500 (freshman) to $2,500 (seniors) per year and are based on the student’s academic and non-academic accomplishments.
Eligible students must attend an accredited printing management or technology program and have permanent residence in one of the four states (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri) served by PIA MidAmerica. Students must be pursuing a management or technology degree. Those who are interested in design, photography, or web-based careers will not be considered for the scholarship. The application deadline is March 1st of every year for the school year beginning in the fall.
