One of the world’s leading schools of print media is expanding a popular scholarship to include more students.

Rochester Institute of Technology, located in western New York, is opening its doors for more applicants to an endowed scholarship geared toward the university’s School of Print Media.

The Southwest School of Printing Management Inc. Education Fund, given to students attending RIT, will now include applicants from Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The scholarship is now available for the first time to those entering print graphic arts and communications related fields of study such as media arts technology, visual communications, new media publishing, graphic design, photography or journalism. The funds were previously only dedicated to undergraduate and graduate students in the print media program.

The Southwest School of Printing Management Inc. established the endowment in 1982, which now totals nearly $800,000. The fund is permanently endowed and invested under the direction of RIT’s Board of Trustees.
