The future is bright for students studying and preparing for careers in the document management and graphic communications industry, and EDSF scholarships are making a big difference. EDSF is the international non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and graphic communications industries, and its scholarship program is benefiting hundreds of students worldwide. Today, EDSF offers donors the opportunity to establish three basic types of scholarships, which support our industry’s future workforce. The three types of scholarships that donors may establish are
- Endowed scholarships that use investment income to make awards;
- Sponsored scholarships, which use a lump sum payment to award a designated amount annually, and;
- Annually Funded scholarships that require a one-time or ongoing annual contributions.
In each case, donors may establish the criteria to be used in awarding scholarships. While it is best to keep criteria as broad as possible for sufficient flexibility, donors may have preferences in a number of areas. Such preferences will be honored, provided they do not conflict with university policies or state and federal laws and regulations.
It is easy to set up a scholarship and a great way to recognize contributions made by a company or individual.
Investing in students is investing in the future of our industry. For more information, please contact Brenda Kaiat firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

“I would like to thank EDSF for the Board of Directors Scholarship. This financial assistance is invaluable in supporting my studies in the field of graphic communications. I will be pursuing my Master of Science degree in Graphic Design at Arizona State University. The rigorous nature of the program, coupled with a teaching assistanceship, makes outside work virtually impossible for me, and that is why I am so grateful for the financial help that this scholarship will provide.”
