The SAAGNY Foundation Scholarship was established to help further the educational goals of SAAGNY member companies’ employees, owners, and immediate family (parent/guardian, child, sibling or spouse) who have been employed in the promotional products industry for at least two years. Since its inception, over $200,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Applicants will be eligible for a scholarship award as full-time (12 credits or more per semester) undergraduate students at any accredited school (Community College, Technical School, Vocational School, 4-year College or University).

Scholarship awards are reviewed by independent judges and based on overall merit with points assigned to:


  • Academics and GPA
  • One academic letter of recommendation
  • One non-academic letter of recommendation
  • Essay
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Charitable activities and community service
  • Awards and achievements
  • Professionalism
  • Outside jobs and projects

Scholarships will be awarded without discrimination as to financial need, race, sex, or religion and are awarded in the amount of $1,000 annually for up to four consecutive years (total $4,000.) All applications are kept confidential and submitted to the Selection Committee for review and action.  Scholarships will be in the form of a check payable to the student each school year, provided the student maintains a 3.0 or better grade point average, the industry employee remains employed by a SAAGNY member company, and the student meets all other conditions annually. If the student fails for any reason to maintain the required grade average, no payment will be made for the subsequent year and the eligibility period will not be extended. However, future payments will be made if the student improves his/her cumulative GPA to the required 3.0. If the student fails to maintain his/her status as a full-time student, the scholarship may be deferred until such time as he/she returns to school full-time. The student will remain eligible for up to four scholarship payments, provided all other criteria are met.

The 2022 scholarship will be awarded by approximately June 1, 2022.

Application deadline is Friday, April 1, 2022 – No extensions will be granted!
