The SAAGNY Foundation Scholarships were 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).
Three scholarship awards will be rewarded based on merit, financial need, and community service/volunteerism. By filling out this application, you are applying into all three categories, but only have the opportunity to be selected for one.
All applications will be reviewed by a committee of independent judges with points assigned to:
– Academics and GPA
– One academic letter of recommendation
– One non-academic letter of recommendation
– Financial Need
– Extracurricular activities
– Charitable activities and community service
– Awards and achievements
– Outside jobs and projects
Scholarships will be awarded without discrimination as to race, sex, or religion and are awarded in the amount of $1,500 per award. All applications are kept confidential and submitted blind to the Selection Committee for review and action. No personal information will be shared with the committee. Scholarships will be in the form of a one-time check payable to the student.
The 2023 scholarship will be awarded by approximately September 15th, 2023.
