Printing scholarships awarded by CPISTF to 57 students
TORONTO—The Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) has announced $75,000 in scholarship funding for 57 students for the current school year.

A total of $28,750 was awarded to 20 new students enrolled in
the first year of an approved course of study, while $46,250 was
provided to 37 continuing students already enrolled in the scholarship program, noted the CPISTF.

The value of each annual scholarship is $1,250, however the board
of trustees during its Aug. 22 meeting agreed that students "exhibiting a high level of talent" are eligible for a Warren Wilkins Prestige Scholarship with a value of $5,000. The trustees awarded that particular scholarship to Tracy Laranjo of Oakville, who will be attending Ryerson University’s School of Graphic Communications Management beginning in September.

“Every year the Board of Trustees is challenged to select the best and brightest as recipients of our scholarships and this year was no exception. We are pleased to be able to support 57 students in their pursuit of a career in the graphic communications industry," said Don Gain, chairman of the fund.

The Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) was initiated in 1971 through the efforts of a group of printing industry executives. Since then, over $1 million has been donated to the fund "thanks to the generosity of firms and individuals associated with the printing industries in Canada."
