In 2013 Signs Now again partnered with the Electronic Document Scholarship Foundation (EDSF), an international, non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and communications industries, to administer five new scholarships totaling $10,000 for the 2013 academic year. The scholarships will support students who are preparing for careers in the printing and document communications industries.
The awards were established as part of a recognition program to honor Signs Now franchise members for outstanding achievements. Bernard Haun, vice president of marketing and communications, Signs Now, said, “We are proud to recognize some of the leaders in our franchise network for their efforts in the industry and also for their dedication to their communities. These scholarships in their honor are a reflection of their hard work.”
The scholarships were awarded based on scholastic achievement, honors received and participation in school activities, along with community service and organizational affiliations. Eligibility requirements include a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale and full-time student status.
