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.
The PIM Scholarship Review Committee accepts scholarship applications from November through April 1st of the following year. This Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and determines the amount of the scholarship awarded. Recipients are notified mid-May.
PIM Scholarships are available to students pursuing a 2 or 4 year degree in Graphic Communication related majors. This includes:
- Press Operation,
- Print Management,
- Graphic Design,
- and other degrees involving print.
The applicant must reside in the state of Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, or North Dakota. Priority is given to the son or daughter of PIM member employees.
