Scholarship Program

Advancement through education is a concept the PSAI has long promoted. Each year the PSAI awards at least five scholarships of $5,000 each to individuals in our industry who have made a commitment to advancing themselves through higher education.

PSAI scholarships are awarded to qualified incoming freshmen and current college undergraduates who are employees – or immediate family members of employees – of a PSAI Member company in good standing anywhere in the world. Since its founding in 2004, over 100 college students have received PSAI scholarships totaling $332,500. Download an application for the 2019 PSAI Scholarship Awards.
