Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta; Ramsey, NJ), has announced the creation of a $50,000 endowed scholarship fund with the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) to provide educational assistance to graphic communications students studying in the US, according to a press release from the company.
“PGSF is a private, not-for-profit, industry-directed organization providing undergraduate college and technical school scholarships and graduate fellowship assistance to talented individuals pursuing graphic communications careers,” reads the release in part. “Its recipients include full-time students as well as industry workers who seek additional education.”
Each year Konica Minolta makes equipment donations to colleges and universities across the country. These include presses, measurement equipment and software, such as the placement of an AccurioPress C12000 digital color press and finishing equipment at California Polytechnic State University.
The company is a strong supporter of the Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA), sponsoring its annual technical conference and serving on the advisory committee, currently as president — per the press release.
“We are committed to helping cultivate the next generation of printing and graphic communication workers to ensure they are prepared to succeed in the industry,” Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, product management and planning, is quoted in the release. “Students are the future of our industry, and will fill a wide range of critical positions including press operators, technicians, sales, photographers, graphic design, pre-press, operational, mailing, administrative and management roles.”Advertisement
