The CPISTF hands out $56,000 in scholarships
ONTARIO—The Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) has awarded $56,000 in scholarships to students studying in the current school year. This is an increase from last year’s $52,500. In May 2015, during the CPISTF Trustee meeting the decision was made to increase the scholarship from $1,250 per year to $1,500 per year to offset the increasing cost of tuition.

The CPISTF awarded $38,000 to 23 new students enrolled in an approved graphic arts management or technical program. An additional $18,000 was awarded to 12 students continuing on in their studies.

This year’s recipient of the Warren Wilkins Prestige award, valued at $5,000 was Courtney Thompson who will be attending Nova Scotia Community College in September.

Since initiated in 1971, over a million dollars has been donated to the fund as a result of the generosity of firms and individuals associated with the printing industry in Canada.
