EDSF Hosts Inaugural Scholarship Night

The Electronic Document Systems Foundation (EDSF) is holding its first-ever Scholarship Night from 5:00-9:00 p.m. tonight at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, after the exhibit hall closes for the day.

Each year, EDSF provides scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000 to students studying for careers in the document management and graphic communications industry. Themed “Give Back at GRAPH,” the EDSF Scholarship Night is aimed at increasing awareness of the need for industry scholarships, and to encourage greater industry participation in raising funds for EDSF’s scholarship program.

It’s hard to imagine a more challenging business environment than what we are currently experiencing,“ observes Brenda Kai, EDSF executive director. Despite all the uncertainty, however, there remains a critical need to attract and foster the development of the next generation of business professionals. We are delighted to be coming to GRAPH EXPO to host ‘Give Back at GRAPH.’ It’s a wonderful opportunity to show support for students needing scholarship assistance and to help shape the future generation.“

We are pleased to welcome EDSF’s inaugural Scholarship Night at GRAPH EXPO,” says Ralph Nappi, GASC president. “With GRAPH EXPO being the premier event for the graphic communications and document management industry, it is only fitting that this event takes place in tandem with GRAPH EXPO 2010. All of us can remember back to when we were first starting out in our careers, and the amount of support that we received from mentors and industry veterans. The EDSF Scholarship Night provides an ideal opportunity to give back, help mentor the next generation of graphic communications professionals, and support the future of our industry.”

“Give Back at GRAPH” includes a cocktail hour, plated dinner, keynote speaker, student testimonials and silent and live auctions of industry products and services and national sports-team memorabilia.
