Scholarships

Tax-deductible donations to the Printing Industry Midwest (PIM) Education Foundation (EF), a 501(c)3 corporation, make possible the distribution of PIM scholarships.  Each year, these PIM scholarships help students prepare for a career in the printing industry. Additionally, PIM members generously established a scholarship endowment. Fundraisers at PIM events throughout the year add to earnings of this ongoing endowment.
