PICA Scholarship Program

The PICA Foundation established the Educational Endowment Fund in 1988 with a funding goal of $1 million. The goals of the Educational Endowment Fund for the Graphic Arts Industry in North & South Carolina are:

  • To respond to the industry’s growing need for a skilled workforce.
  • To provide financial assistance for promising students of graphic communications or graphic arts & imaging technology at community colleges and universities in North & South Carolina.

PICA Foundation Scholarships are available at Appalachian State University and Chowan University, and at Clemson University, it is known as the Edgar H. Snider Memorial Scholarship. For additional details, including criteria and application forms, you may contact:

The PICA/Weese Scholarship established in 1985 honors Ms. Freda G. Weese who retired after 21 years of loyal and continuous service as PICA Director of Finance. Since 1992, PICA/Weese Scholarships have been awarded each year to deserving young people pursuing a graphic communications degree at community colleges within the Carolinas. Currently, the PICA Foundation awards four (4) $500 scholarships each year.

In 2006, the PICA/Treadaway Scholarship was established as a memorial to Bill Treadaway, who served from 1963-1991 as PICA President, and died in March 2004. The PICA/Treadaway Scholarship is designed as a multi-year scholarship for a graphic communications student at the community college level. For a first year student, the award is $500. If the recipient maintains or improves his/her overall GPA and major GPA, the second year award is $1,000.

PICA/Dillard Graphics Management Institute

The Graphics Management Institute (GMI) was established in 1977 to provide a continuing education program to employees of the graphic arts and printing industry. The GMI is geared toward keeping company owners and other key managers up-to-date on industry trends, management practices, and developing technologies. The curriculum includes seminars on sales and marketing, personnel, financing, computer applications, industrial relations, government affairs, and technical skills. The PICA Foundation and Dillard Paper Company jointly endowed GMI, each contributing $50,000 to the fund, which partially underwrites tuition and program fees.
