PGSF offers scholarships to students interested in pursuing careers related to the graphic communications industry and provides financial assistance to industry workers seeking to further their education.
UW-Stout’s awardees and their majors are:
- Starr Gong, of Altoona, senior, graphic design and interactive media
- Carrigan Heinz, of Mondovi, senior, graphic design and interactive media
- Alyssa Koehler, of Amery, senior, packaging
- Cali Scholes, of DeForest, junior, graphic communications.
Awards for the UW-Stout students averaged nearly $5,000, about $1,500 higher than the national average.
The scholarships are renewable for up to four years, providing the student maintains at least a 3.0 grade point average and is enrolled full time in a related program.
“PGSF has allowed me so much peace of mind when it comes to affording school,” Scholes said. “That’s left more room for me to take opportunities that I normally wouldn’t have and to explore the graphic communications major at UW-Stout beyond what I could have ever imagined.”
Applications for 2023-24 scholarships open in November 2022.
