The SAAGNY Foundation Scholarship was established to help further the educational goals of SAAGNY’s member companies’ employees, owners and immediate family (parent/guardian, child, sibling or spouse) who have been employed in the promotional products industry for at least two years. Since its inception, over $150,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Applicants will be eligible for scholarship awards as full time (12 credits or more per semester) undergraduate students at any accredited school (Community College, Technical School, Vocational School, 4-year College or University).
Scholarship awards are reviewed by independent judges and based on overall merit with points assigned to:
- Grade Point Average
- One academic letter of recommendation
- One non-academic letter of recommendation
- Extracurricular Activities
- Academic Awards and Achievements
- Non-Academic Awards and Achievements
- Outside Jobs and Projects
Scholarships will be awarded without discrimination as to financial need, race, sex or religion and are awarded in the amount of $1,000 annually for up to four consecutive years (total $4,000.). All applications are kept confidential and submitted to the Selection Committee for review and action. Scholarships will be in the form of a check payable to the student each school year provided the student maintains a 3.0 or better grade point average, the industry employee remains employed by a SAAGNY member company and student meets all other conditions annually. If illness or other concerns prevent a student from maintaining the required grade average, no payment will be made for that year and the eligibility period will not be extended.
The 2018 scholarships will be awarded by approximately June 15, 2018.
