2019 Donors

For our dynamic industry to continue moving forward, it is essential that young people with skills, energy and ideas choose a career path in graphic communications. We know how difficult it can be to recruit bright, young employees.

Canadian Print Scholarships is funded entirely by the Graphic Communications Industry. Each year, leading printers, suppliers, associations and other organizations donate to the Fund.

Donors help attract top performing students to pursue a career in print and graphic communications.
