Scholarships for "Children of the Industry"

By The PEiR Group

After an awful lot of hard work, too many phone calls to count and the generosity of several of the biggest names in our industry, the CREST Foundation is set to announce 10 recipients of its first scholarship awards later this month.

In all, the Foundation will award $100,000 to assist qualified, deserving students across the country.

More than 50 applications for the 2008/2009 academic year were received from every region of the United States following the launch of the Foundation earlier this year. The applications represent the children of employees from firms belonging to the IRgA, as well as the WRA, CRA, ERRA/SRA, ReproMax, PEiR Group, and RSA.

Applicants were ranked and scored based on academic achievements, financial need, extra awards, honors, work, relevant experiences, a personal essay, and references.

CREST Foundation (Children of Reprographics Employees Scholarship Trust) awards are funded by the generous donations of individuals, reprographic companies, industry vendors and financial institutions. This year’s recipients were chosen by the CREST Foundation’s Selection Committee whose members include industry veterans Bill Thomas, Mike Carter, Cathleen Cushing Duff, John Deermount, and Miguel Garcia.

Announcements for the 2009/2010 application process will be made in January 2009.
