Print Industry Scholarship Opportunities

Regionally and nationally, the print industry’s associations are committed to assisting individuals with their educational plans for a career in graphic communications.

Students in a qualified two, three or four-year printing management or technical program in a post-secondary Canadian school may be eligible for one of the scholarships offered nationally through the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) or through BCIT’s Lorne Patterson Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Each is easy to apply for, and greatly reduce the cost of your program. The CPISTF scholarship value of $1,250 is administered and managed through the CPIA – for an up to date list of their approved programs and scholarship details, visit

Printforward’s annual memorial grant of $500 is issued in the name of long-time industry leader Lorne Patterson, and is aligned with BCIT’s Graphic Communications Technology program.
