About Us

THE CANADIAN PRINTING INDUSTRIES SCHOLARSHIP TRUST FUND was initiated by the Canadian Printing Industries Association in 1971, through the efforts of a group of visionary printing industry executives. Since then, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated, as a result of the generosity of firms and individuals associated with the printing industries in Canada.

The Trust Fund exists exclusively for the benefit of the printing industries in Canada. The investment of capital and the disbursement of scholarship monies is solely at the discretion of the Board of Trustees of the Fund. The Trustees are made up of a dedicated group of recognized leaders of the printing industries in Canada.

The primary objective of the Fund is to attract the most talented young people available to the printing industry by providing financial assistance to them while they are enrolled in a graphic arts management or technical program. It is these same young people upon whom we must rely to ensure the future growth and prosperity of the printing industry in Canada.

Including the current school year, the Fund has provided scholarships to literally hundreds of students who met the necessary qualifications. A great many of these students have ended up being employed by either the industry executive who interviewed them, as part of the qualification process, or by one of the firms that made a donation to the Fund and hold senior management and operating positions in today’s industry. Many of these students also secured summer employment and gained practical experience under the same circumstances.
