In 2001, the NPES Board of Directors created the Regis J. Delmontagne Endowed Scholarship
fund with a contribution of $300,000 to the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation
(PGSF). Creation of the fund honored NPES President Regis J. Delmontagne on the occasion marking his 25-year anniversary as the Association’s chief executive. The purpose of the endowed scholarship is twofold: to encourage bright young people to plan for careers in the industry and to benefit the employees and children of NPES member companies.
To be eligible for the NPES scholarships, a candidate shall be preparing for a career in graphic communications, planning to attend a school in the United States, with a major including, but not limited to, the study of print/graphic communication production, print/graphic communication management, business administration, chemistry, physics or engineering. Candidates must meet standard PGSF requirements.
Applicants should indicate their NPES connection on the application form. Additional consideration will be given to graduates of PrintED accredited programs. Applications must be postmarked by March 1st of each year for high school students and by April 1st of each year for college students.
