The Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF) is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2023-24 school year with a deadline of March 15, 2023.
PPEF's scholarship recipients are announced in early June each year. Since 1989, PPEF has awarded over $3 million in college scholarships to 1,618 promotional products industry employees and their children.
For the 2022-23 school year, $299,000 in total scholarship money was awarded to 162 students (130 new recipients and 32 renewal recipients). For 2023-24, $320,500 will be distributed among 170 students (138 new recipients and 32 renewal recipients).
Sixty-four available merit scholarships will pay $1,250 each; 102 available needs scholarships will pay $2,250 each; and four available chairman’s scholarships will pay $2,750 each.
Earlier this year, the PPEF Board of Trustees voted to eliminate the use of ACT/SAT scores from the scholarship evaluation process for a two-year trial period.
